Request Summary: The request is quite general but seeks a webinar to offer Year 12 and Year 13 students an insight into life and learning at university. Biddenham has not been specific about dates so we will negotiate this with them based on a potential academic’s availability. They are happy for other schools to be invited.  

Q1 Which school/college are you from?

Biddenham International School and Sports College is a mixed secondary school and sixth form.

Q2 What type of university webinar are you requesting (Please note that some of the options are similar – please choose the one/s that best describes what you are looking for)?

  • Guidance Talk – This may be a talk on personal statements, student finance, student life, etc
  • Taster Lecture – A subject based talk to give students an insight into a subject area and the associated learning experience at university

Q3 Please describe any specific focus and requirements for what is covered in the session/s and what you would like it to achieve (learning/awareness/skills/motivation)?

To give students a better insight into life and learning at university.

Q4 What year group/s is this for?

  • Year 12
  • Year 13

Q5 As a rough estimate how many students would you expect to take part?

We currently have around 100 students in year 12 and it would be great to get them all involved, perhaps across a couple of sessions if that would make it easier.

Q6 Please provide up to 3 alternatives for when you would ideally like this to take place allowing a minimum of 3-4 weeks lead time? (If you are requesting more than one session or are unclear/flexible about dates at this stage, please move to question 6).

Q7 If you want to book several sessions, or there is greater flexibility around the date/time, or you are uncertain at this stage when you would like it to happen, please give us as much detail as possible here?

We can be flexible regarding times as we can identify a group of students and get them off timetable if required.

Q8 Are you happy for other schools/colleges to be invited? (This often makes it more likely that a university will pick it up and students often say that they enjoy interacting with other schools).

  • Yes

Q9 Do you have any preferences in terms of the universities we try to engage? (In practice the request is more likely to be fulfilled if a wider range of unis can be approached).

  • No

Q10 Is there anything further you think would be useful for us to know?
