This is not your typical university guidance session! Come along to gain useful insights into the application process from experienced Admissions professionals (one of whom previously worked in university admissions supporting applications from international applicants).

The session includes an interactive workshop to help parents develop a better understanding and skills they can use to help support their child in writing their application essay and personal statement, and also a mock admissions session to learn more about how this really works!
