University advice for 6.1s from OBs

The Friday before last, 6.1 students received a talk from a representative from the University of Southampton about university applications. We were given an informative talk providing us with guidelines as to how to tackle the UCAS form, personal statement and what universities are looking for in a prospective student. On Saturday we visited the Library where a large number of Old Bedalians who were currently studying, about to study or had finished studying at university were ready to talk to us. The huge variety in subjects and universities represented gave us all the opportunity to discuss our future options and hear about student life from those who are already experiencing it. Both days allowed us to grasp a good knowledge of the universities that are available to us and how we should tackle the application process when the time comes in September. View photos.
