Students at the College of Haringey Enfield and North East London hoping to progress onto higher education were able to speak directly to over 20 universities yesterday as the College held its annual Higher Education Fair.
Universities from across London and the south east attended the half day event, which helps students make the right choice before submitting their applications.
Access to Science student, Cheryl Palmer, is applying for a Degree in Radiography at City University and was able to speak to recruitment officer Amina Hassan about what they expect from their applicants. Cheryl said: “It was good to speak to someone from the university at this point so I know what I need to address in my application. They’re also having an open day next week so I’ll definitely be attending.”
Access to Teaching students, Tatiana Wanietikina and Mirela Reljan-Delaney, were both inspired by speaking to Roehampton advisor Tony Mcleod who told them they needed distinctions to study education at the university. “It’s good to know now what we have to aim for,” said Tatiana.
Roehampton advisor, Tony, added: “These types of events are particularly good for Access students who are taking a non-conventional route into higher education. Informing students three weeks into their course what they need to achieve to study at Roehampton is a great way for students to work hard and focus.”
Jane O’Neill, Vice Principal of Curriculum and Learner Experience, said: “Year on year we have more students studying vocational qualifications who want to access higher education. This event gives them the information they need to make an informed choice.”
