UK University and Apprenticeship Search Event


October 2023

Dear Parent/Carer

UK University and Apprenticeship Search Event

We have been offered the opportunity to take our students to the UK University and Apprenticeship Search Event in Northampton on Friday 10th November 2023. We will leave school at 8:45am and return at 2:30pm, subject to traffic.

This event will showcase a multitude of universities, apprenticeship providers and colleges within a large exhibition hall. The event also features apprenticeship and university seminars as well as campus tours of the University of Northampton’s stunning new facilities, interactive departmental demonstrations and free student brochures with detailed UCAS application guides.

The intention is to provide students with a complete range of options for their post 17 and post 18 education and career choices. This exciting and inspirational higher education fair is particularly targeted at sixth form students, who are beginning to make choices about their futures and are still
considering their options. This fair will feature:

10:10am – 10.30am Student Finance
10.40am – 11.00am UCAS Personal Statement
11:10am – 11.30am Why take an Apprenticeship
