HE Guidance: What Admissions Tutors Are Looking For – Sciences With Laura Hill & Professor Mark Whitehead From Aberystwyth University

October 12 @ 13:30 - 14:00

 

 

In Aberystwyth’s What Admissions Tutors Are Looking For series, we are offering 3 quickfire, interactive 30 minute weekly events to support students with their current and future university applications.

Each session will focus on a specific ‘Faculty’ and will include a live conversation between a student recruitment executive, an admissions tutor and a current student, with time allocated to engage participants in the conversation.

In this session we will be covering applications to Sciences, discussing:

  1. What it’s like to study Sciences (more broadly and at Aberystwyth);
  2. What type of students flourish/excel and what students gain from Sciences courses;
  3. What the application process looks like and whether it differs much from other universities;
  4. What the university looks for in applications and suggestions to ensure that the application stands out, with a particular focus on Personal Statements.

This is a great opportunity to hear from the people who will be making decisions about applications and who know what attributes make students thrive at university. In a relaxed and friendly forum, it is also the perfect opportunity to ask any questions you have about the admissions process.

Within Sciences, Aberystwyth University offers courses in Geography, Biology, Veterinary Science, Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics.
