University Webinars

This week, the University of Bradford UK Recruitment team will be delivering four informative webinar sessions for both pre-16 students and their parents and carers, and for students progressing to University this year.

Pre-16 Webinars
On 27 April from 3.30pm - 4.30pm, James will be leading our Why Go to University? webinar for GCSE students. This session will provide an insight into the reasons why students chose to go to University, to help your students make an informed choice about their future options.

This webinar will be followed by an information session for Parents and Carers of Year 11 Students, which will take place from 5pm - 6pm on 27 April to provide advice and guidance on subject and qualification choices post 16 to support future University applications with Caroline and Usman.

Year 13 - Applying This Year?
UCAS Extra remains open until 5 July for applicants who have used all their five choices and are not currently holding any offers. This could provide an opportunity for your students to consider an alternative course choice or perhaps a university nearer home.

Applicants who have not yet applied in this cycle can still make a main scheme application until 30 June, so there is still plenty to time to research higher education options online, to apply for 2020 entry and to secure a place before clearing.
