New College students aim higher
Categories: Press Releases
Nick Owen, Progression Co-ordinator said: “We are helping our current students to think about planning for their future so they can make decisions which are right for them. We give students and their parents the best possible support including guiding them through the university application process to stop it feeling daunting.”
Nick continued: “Decisions each student makes could affect them for the rest of their life, so we encourage students to attend sessions and drop in to see us with any queries. Tuition fees are an issue which often gets raised and we have up to date information on bursaries, grants and loans available, so that students are in a position to make the best choice for their future.”
The Birmingham Higher Education Convention 2011 is expected to be one of the biggest to date. Over 12,000 visitors and 140 schools/colleges attended the 2009 event at Aston University. Feedback from Schools, exhibitors and visitors was consistently excellent. New College is providing free transport to and from the event for those students who have signed up to attend the convention.
The event in Birmingham follows a series of events and activities held at New College to provide Career Education Information, Advice and Guidance for all students. Sessions included ‘Career Goals’, ‘Applying for Specialist Areas’ including Law and Medicine, ‘Completing the Application Process’, together with the latest details on Student Finance.
