Students at The College of Haringey Enfield and North London (CONEL) had the chance to find out more about going to university at a Higher Education Fair.
Around 150 students attended the fair which also included a programme of talks on completing personal statements as part of the university application process, making university choice and funding options, including student loans.
Institutions at the event included London South Bank University, London Metropolitan University, Brunel University, Kingston University, Royal Holloway, King’s College London, Goldsmiths, Birkbeck University of London and the University of Westminster.
Hundreds of CONEL students go on to university each year after studying Access to Higher Education or Level 3 extended vocational courses in various subjects, which are equivalent to three A-levels.
The College offers various HND and HNC courses. HNDs can be topped up to a full honours degree by studying a final year at university. CONEL also offers foundation and honours degrees in counselling, and Association of Accounting Technician (AAT) apprenticeship at Level 4, and a range of higher education teaching qualification, including a Postgraduate Certificate in Post-Compulsory Education.
Renu Arrowsmith, Careers Adviser at CONEL, said: “Our annual Higher Education Fair provides a great opportunity for students to learn more about higher education study.
“It’s a great way to help them decide on which universities they should apply to, by giving them the chance to ask questions about everything from course content and selection procedures to bursaries, accommodation and student events.
“The students who attended fully participated in the event, which really showed their enthusiasm to progress on to higher education."
