Thinking of studying engineering at university? You’re bound to have lots of questions: how do courses vary, how will I be taught and assessed, how will I be supported towards my career goals?

In this webinar, you’ll have the chance to hear from a current engineering student at the University of East Anglia (UEA). Hear more about their typical day, how they’ve managed their studies with their student life and what they wish they’d known before they’d started. There will also be plenty of time to put your questions to them.

Joining the session will be Dr Alex Askounis, Admissions Director from UEA’s School of Engineering, to answer questions around topics such as the application process, course options and placements.


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: All students in the process of applying, or considering applying, to university and would like to hear more about what a Engineering degree entails. Parents and carers are also welcome to attend the session.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider questions they have about studying Engineering at university.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans 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:
