10.11.17 : International Universities Fair

We were delighted to welcome the Council of International Schools College & University Fair to St Leonards on Friday, 10 November, for what was the only UK stop on the group’s Northern Europe tour.

The afternoon event was a chance for students in Years 11, 12 and 13 to talk ‘higher education’ with representatives from 23 different universities across Europe, the United States and Canada.

The School Hall was bustling with students and speakers, who each made a one-minute pitch showcasing their institution. Students then had the opportunity to browse the stands, discuss course options, enquire about scholarships and ask any other questions about life after St Leonards.

Workshops also ran throughout the afternoon, with representatives sharing tips for the perfect university application.

As the only school in the UK to be visited by these universities, this was an incredible opportunity for St Leonards staff and students to explore the range of international options available to them because of the IB Diploma.

In the evening, we welcomed parents to attend the International Universities Fair, giving them a chance to pose questions to university recruitment and admissions officers and discover more about the various paths open to their children.

An excellent information day was enjoyed by all. Thank you to the following universities for taking the time to visit St Leonards and inspire our students:
