English Webinar with Reading, Bristol and Sheffield University
29 June 2017
At Ashton Sixth Form College, student's gain countless opportunities throughout the year to think about their future after college. The English Department at the college put on a university webinar, in collaboration with Realising Aspirations.
The webinar allowed students to speak directly to 3 universities: Reading, Bristol and Sheffield. Each of these universities is in the Top 40 for English courses (Complete Uni Guide, July 2017). Being situated quite a distance from Manchester, students could find out more about these universities before making a journey.
Each university presented their offer of English courses and spoke about what studying an English degree at that particular university was like. Students then had the opportunity to ask a range of questions from Finance to Entry Requirements to Bursaries to Accommodation.
Ashton Sixth Form College students could also ask specific degree-related questions on modules and works studied, allowing them to gain a real understanding of university life and how they can go on to specialise further in their chose subjects after A-Levels.
