Twelve universities from all over the United Kingdom came to BVIS on Wednesday afternoon to give students an opportunity to talk about application procedures, courses on offer and scholarship opportunities.
Nottingham Trent University also gave a lecture on writing a successful personal statement, the key to a student’s application.
The A level programme at BVIS is ideal preparation for courses at any university in the world, but with the system originating in the UK, universities from there are particularly keen on them. “They let us see that student is really passionate about a subject,” said one advisor. “When they are focusing on art or science or whatever it may be, we know that a student really wants to study that course, and A levels prepare a young person perfectly for a degree.”
With many of our year 13s already awaiting acceptance from a range of universities, this was an ideal time to give our year 10s, 11s and 12s the chance to talk further about their own future pathways.
