Higher Education Evening
Sevenoaks School hosted their annual Higher Education information evening on Thursday 26 May 2016. The audience was made up of 220+ Lower Sixth students and their parents. The aim of the event was to offer up-to-date information about applying to UK universities. We were delighted to welcome the following speakers:
Professor Richard Harvey Director of Admissions, UEA
Mike Nicholson, Head of Admissions, Bath University
Kerry O’Shea, Head of Admissions at Bristol University
Peter Chetwynd, Head of Undergraduate Admissions at KCL
Nick Johnston, Durham University
Each of them gave a presentation on a range of themes including uuniversities and the IB, how to choose a course, Personal Statements, selection criteria used by universities and the changing HE landscape. This was followed by a panel discussion based around pre-submitted questions and some questions from the floor.
It was an extremely informative evening and feedback from students and parents alike was very positive. The evening was organised by Wendy Heydorn, Director of Higher Education and Charlotte Glanville, Assistant Director of Higher Education.
