HE Guidance: One Year to Go – The Transition to University With Lydia Newton & Emily Moran From University of East Anglia
June 21 @ 13:00 - 13:45
In this HE Guidance session, we will be joined by Lydia Newton, Higher Education Adviser, and Emily Moran, current UEA student and Recruitment and Outreach Intern at University of East Anglia. Lydia and Emily will run an interactive One Year to Go – Transition to University session for students looking at:
- How studying at university might vary from what you’re used to at sixth form or college.
- What extra and super-curricular activities you can be doing now to build skills and inform your next steps.
- What support is available to you to help with your finances, studies and wellbeing at university.
- Hear what it’s really like to be at university directly from a current student – from making friends and living independently to balancing studies and managing your money.
There will also be plenty of time for you to ask questions.
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.
As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.
Suitable for: Predominantly Year 12/Level 3 (and equivalent) students but open to all students considering university.
Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the topic in advance, with respect to challenges they may face or questions they have.
The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans (similar to Zoom) and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard. You will be able to interact with the university via a microphone and/or typed comments and questions. Full details will be sent to those who have registered (see below) prior to the event.
Booking a Place: This is free for schools and colleges. If you would like to take part in this event, please register your interest using the link to the registration form below:
