The Academy’s Sixth Form find inspiration at Manchester City’s Etihad stadium.
This was an excellent way for our students to learn more about university life and understand what opportunities are available to them. The fair brought together a vast array of exhibiting Universities, Colleges and Higher Education (HE) institutions, within an exhibition space overlooking the pitch.
Post 16 Progress Coach, Andy Romaniuk said of the day: “It was a very valuable experience. The lads practised writing their UCAS Personal Statements, attended a workshop about student finance and were introduced to the Oxbridge application process.” He added: “They were excited to be visiting the Etihad Stadium to start with and then having all these universities on hand, they were excited about their futures too.”
This was the fourth UK University Search Fair held, giving youngsters an opportunity to meet a UK wide selection of universities, higher education and apprenticeship providers, in order to gain vital advice for their UCAS applications and HE decision making.
