On Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 April 2012, The University of Northampton will be hosting the annual higher education conference for Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes and surrounding counties for the 12th year running.
The conference, part of the national UCAS convention network and the largest in the region, will see over 7,000 students invited to The University of Northampton's Park Campus for the duration of the two-day event.
Students from across the region will have the chance to find out what higher education has to offer and what graduate employment options are likely to be open to them on completion of their studies.
Representatives from over 130 UK higher education establishments will be available to answer questions and discuss student options. There will be over 30 seminars taking place, including 'Routes into medicine', 'How to write a CV', 'What admissions tutors are looking for', 'Personal statements' and 'Routes into teaching'.
David Seaton, Senior Guidance Officer at The University of Northampton explains:
"We are delighted to be hosting this annual conference for school and college groups in April 2012. This year there will be a special focus for students from secondary schools and colleges on changes to Government-funding for university places, the importance of researching your higher education choices and employability.
"This is a brilliant opportunity for young people, teachers and parents to speak in person to university representatives from across the country. I would encourage school and college groups to register for the conference early to avoid disappointment."
