Science & Engineering: Online HE Faculty Fair With Glasgow, Warwick & UEA

June 3 @ 13:00 - 15:00

 

As part of a series of 5 Faculty Fairs, University of Warwick, UEA and University of Glasgow will showcase their fantastic and diverse undergraduate Science & Engineering programmes within a collective Facebook live event.

Starting at 13:00, each university has a window of 2 hours in which to present talks, discussions and Q&A involving their academics, university staff and students.

Prospective students, parents/carers and school staff joining the Faculty Fair on Facebook can move between the different universities as they would do during a normal fair. You can also comment and ask questions on each university’s broadcast, which the university speakers will respond to.

For sixth form students, whatever stage you are at in your research, this Faculty Fair is a great opportunity to make comparisons and inform the decisions you are making about university courses and locations. For school staff, it is a chance to keep up to date on what is being offered by universities in order to fully support your current cohort. And, for many students, parents/carers are the great sounding board in what can be a daunting process; we would love for you to be able to join us too.

By the end of the Fair we hope you will feel informed and inspired by what you have heard and, if you miss anything, each of the broadcasts will be recorded and available on the Facebook event page for your future reference.

Below, we are delighted to present the respective programmes from the universities for those currently available.
