Annual Events:

Higher Education Advice Evening 
Wednesday 11th June 2014

Aston University is pleased to confirm that we will be holding our annual Higher Education Advice Evening on Wednesday 11th June 2014.

We are conscious that knowledge and awareness of Higher Education issues such as admissions and finance are important, not only for those applying to University but also to their parents and guardians, particularly if they have little or no experience of Higher Education themselves.

With this in mind, we have put together an evening for parents and guardians and on the Aston University campus, covering general HE issues to complement the already extensive support and advice given by schools and colleges.

The topics covered during the evening will be general and informal and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and find out more about Higher Education. 

A brief programme is outlined below:

5.00 – 5.45pm               Optional Session – Tour of the Aston University Campus

5.30 – 6.10pm               Registration and evening buffet

6.15pm                         Welcome & Introduction

        • The benefits of HE - Employment opportunities after graduation;

        • Choosing a course;

        • How your son/daughter applies to University – making the most of their application;

        • Student Finance at University/College – what support is available, funding, budgeting etc

8.00 – 8.30pm               Refreshments and opportunity to ask questions 

        • An opportunity to speak to Aston University staff and students.

Although this event is intended for parents/guardians, students are more than welcome to attend. Please note that, due to the popularity of this event, booking is essential and is limited to 3 places per booking.
