It’s UCAS Personal Statement Week – have you started yours?

This session will help you in completing that all important university application. Join higher education experts from the University of East Anglia (UEA) who will discuss the UCAS application process, key dates to remember, and what admissions teams are looking for in a potential student.

There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions in this friendly and informative session.



Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.
