Year 12 Higher Education Convention at Nottingham Trent University
02 May 2018
Re: East Midlands Higher Education Convention 2018 at University of Nottingham
It is time for our Year 12 students to start the process of researching, planning and in the very near future applying to universities. We believe that it is essential for students to take advantage of open days and taster courses that universities offer to get an idea what they have available to them.
As part of this process, we will visit the East Midlands H.E. Convention on Friday 15 June 2018. Coaches will leave school at 9.15am and will depart from Nottingham at 12.00pm, returning to school at approximately 13.00pm. Students will be required to attend registration before and lessons after the trip as per their timetable.
This experience is part of the Sixth Form enrichment programme for all Year 12 students but places are limited by UCAS, the University and Colleges Admissions Service.
All paperwork can be collected from the Sixth Form Office and should be returned there as soon as possible to guarantee a place as there is a limit of 100 places. Students will attend the convention in school dress code. There is no cost for this visit.
The programme for the day
Nottingham has confirmation of attendance from 145 Universities, Colleges and other relevant exhibitors, giving students the opportunity to talk to them informally. In addition, a number of seminars will be offered and students should be encouraged to attend relevant subject and general talks.
As part of the event, students will be required to attend a session run by the University of Leicester in preparation for making the most of the conference. This will be after school on Monday 11th June (15.15 -16.00). This is an essential part of attending the conference. Students will need to register for the event at Nottingham Trent University once their place has been confirmed. The information for this will be communicated during this session.
If you have any questions regarding this event, please do not hesitate to contact the Sixth Form Team.
