On Wednesday 27th February, we welcomed lower sixth students and parents to our annual University Information Evening held in the Ruddock Performing Arts Centre. Mr Roderick Smith, Director of Admissions at the University of Birmingham, gave the plenary talk about how to make a good university application, from choosing a course and institution, to writing a strong personal statement. Students then attended a choice of talks, with topics including studying Chemistry, Modern Languages, Geography and related courses, Psychology and Criminology, Biomedical Science, PPE, and the value of undertaking a degree in History, Classics, and any Humanities subject. Students also had the opportunity to learn about Degree Apprenticeships and applying to Oxbridge. The overriding message from the evening was: Do your research! We encourage all lower sixth students to ask themselves: ‘Is this what you want to do? Is this where you want to live? Do you want to study these core modules?’ The Careers Department would like to thank all staff involved, as well as our visiting speakers from the following universities: Birmingham, Warwick, UCL, Imperial, Lancaster, Cambridge, Nottingham, and Nottingham Trent.
