Further to another extremely successful HE week (programme found here), I have great pleasure in attaching the presentations that were given during the week.
Unfortunately Maastricht University were not able to attend this year’s event but they did send through a presentation and an information sheet for those interested in applying to universities in Europe.
As well as the presentations above we also completed exercises in ‘searching for courses and universities’. You can also follow this link to an example of a personal statement and a proforma detailing how to write these important documents. All Y12 pupils moving through to Y13 are expected to arrive back in September with a carefully thought through draft of their statement.
I hope that those of you who managed to attend the various sessions found them useful. Please note that we are not trying to push students in any particular direction but we are making sure that they have as much information as possible when making these difficult decisions.
Any questions or comments regarding the HE week would be gladly received.

Resources from the 2011 Higher Education Week are included here for reference:
As well as presentations by speakers we also completed exercises on 'searching courses and universities'. One was completed by students alone and the other by parents with their sons or daughters. Furthermore, an example of a personal statement as well as a proforma detailing how to write these was handed out and is included here.
