Higher Education Advice Evening, Wednesday 23 November 2016, 5.00pm-8.30pm, Aston University campus
This event is for parents and guardians of Year 11 & Year 12 students to provide up-to-date knowledge and guidance and ensure that they have accurate information when advising their son or daughter through the application to university process.
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.
This year, we will provide the opportunity to:
- Receive information on UCAS, Student Finance and employment opportunities after graduation
- Hear from an Aston University academic on how to best prepare for the transition to university
- Have a tour of our campus by our current students
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you and everyone who took part. I found the event really useful, as a parent becoming increasingly stressed out by the whole process it was great to see how supportive universities can be with new students
