On Tuesday 12th January 2016, BIS hosted twelve universities from the UK.
The purpose of this university fair was to give our students an opportunity to meet with university admission staff and to discuss with them not only the prospect of studying in these respected institutions, but to also find out more about the courses on offer, the availability of scholarships, etc…
We were privileged to welcome to following universities to our secondary campus:
University of the Arts London Nottingham Trent University
BPP University The University of Sheffield
University of East Anglia Staffordshire University
University of Essex Teesside University
University of Gloucestershire University of Warwick
Leeds Beckett University University of Westminster
The university representatives met with our Year 12 students during a private session before the event was opened up to the entire school community. The representatives were very happy to meet with our students and enthusiastically shared with them information on how to apply, available courses, the nature and availability of scholarships, campus facilities, residential provisions and how to obtain further information. The after school public event was open to students from Year 9-11 as well as parents. The afternoon saw a constant stream of prospective students and parents curious to find out more.
The feedback we have received from the representatives was incredibly positive. They left BIS incredibly impressed by the sincerity of our students, their general interest in learning more about studying in the UK and were hopeful about seeing a few BIS students on their campus in the not too distant future.
