University of Hertfordshire Roadshow Bus, Wednesday 26/6, from 9.00

I am pleased to say that after some last minute negotiations, we have managed to arrange for the University of Hertfordshire Roadshow to come to our college this Wednesday, from 9.00 to the end of the day.  The Bus is touring Birmingham, Nottingham, Leicester and Milton Keynes areas and has kindly agreed to spend a day with our college students.  The aim of the bus will obviously be to promote courses at the University and some subject staff will be present with activities, but information will be available on all subject areas and it is for ALL students.  There will also be staff on the bus whose role will be to give advice and guidance on a variety of issues including:

·         why go to university
·         finance
·         personal statements

The bus and staff will effectively be acting as a drop-in information point for students between D and G Blocks.  Please make them welcome and seize the opportunity to find out more.  It could lead to a life-changing decision!
