Virtual University Fair 2021

Wellington College University Fair 2021 

Venue: Online

Date: Wednesday, 27th January 2021

Time: 6pm – 8pm

In order to help Year 12 Students choose their universities and courses, Wellington College are hosting a virtual Universities Fair evening on Wednesday 27th January at 6.00pm. As in previous years, Wellington College would like to invite students and their parents from our local schools, to help them make informed decisions about Universities. This will offer you the chance to hear all the latest information on the UCAS application procedure.

Owing to the current situation unfortunately we are unable to have as many universities attending as in previous years however we do have a good selection of universities on a smaller scale. The evening will be run in the form of a panel discussion hosted by Dr Victoria Gardner, Head of Wellington College 6thForm, where you can ask any pressing questions to the representatives.  Following this discussion you will then break out and take part in the University Expo. Details on how to register for this event are outlined below. 

As you will be well aware, university entrance is now more competitive than ever and it is important that both students and parents have a clear insight into what has become an increasingly fraught process. Year 12 Students should have already started the process of drafting a list of universities and this event will be of particular relevance to those students considering Russell Group and other top universities. The list of universities who will be represented by a member of their admissions department are: Bath, Bristol, Durham, Exeter, Edinburgh, King’s College London, Loughborough, Oxford, St Andrew’s and University College London.

The format of the evening would be as follows:
6.00pm Introductory talk and panel session on UCAS.
6.45 – 8.00pm

Lower Sixth pupils and parents to visit University Expo sessions
