On Sunday, UWC Atlantic College welcomed universities from all over the UK to its second annual UK University Fair. 16 universities joined the event to inform students about the different study programmes, funding, housing options, special scholarships, and student life at their respective institutions. There were also a number of talks, which included, 'Studying at Oxbridge' by Dr Kirsten Dickers from Sidney Sussex College at Cambridge University, ‘Writing an effective Personal Statement’ by Maxwell Howells from the University of Kent, ‘Studying in Scotland’ by Ali Clark from the University of Dundee and, 'How to choose the Right Course' by Rory Robinson from King’s College London.

Many of the university representatives were very impressed by the College and the informed questions made by students about entry requirements and course specifics. It is a great opportunity for students at AC to get their specific questions answered, be inspired about programmes they never heard about and to put a face to the universities, where often correspondence only takes place via emails or websites. Anna Boyd, the Director of University Guidance, said she was thankful for the university representatives for taking the time on a Sunday to speak to the students at AC, making their paths to the future so much easier with their answers and insights.

The following universities participated in the 2016 fair:

University of Bath                                       University of Gloucestershire

University of Birmingham                           Goldsmiths, University of London

Cambridge University                                 University of Kent

Cardiff University                                       King’s College London

The College runs this fair for UK Universities annually in May. There is also a fair in September for US and Canadian Universities, and a fair for Dutch Universities is being held in March. All universities are welcomed at the College for individual or small group presentations during September-November each year.

‘From the person who donated £20, to the person who donated £2000 - thank you. I am extremely grateful and indebted… I will do everything in my power to make sure that the contribution made is going to mean something more…’
