Taking the Next Step - Education Liaison Talks

Going to university is a big decision and there can be lots to consider along the way.

Our Education Liaison team is here to offer support and guidance every step of the way, lending a helping hand to both teachers and their students. While they are unable to visit schools at the moment, they are still here to help.

Watch our team live on this page every Thursday at 1pm as they deliver some of their most popular presentations, from choosing the right degree for you and preparing a personal statement, to applying for student finance and getting to grips with the application process. 

Join us on Thursday 4 June for the next presentation in the series, providing a detailed overview of the UCAS application timeline and aims to equip students with the knowledge and information necessary to navigate their way through the admissions process, application stages, receiving offers, and interviews.

As many of us spend our days at home in the fight against Coronavirus, it's becoming clearer each day just how important the arts are in our every day lives. They are providing inspiration, keeping us entertained, and invoking thought. They are helping to keep us sane, and get us through this difficult time. 

You can show your support for the arts, by getting involved in our #WhyArtsMatter Campaign. 

Launched by the University with support from Alan Bishop, Chief Executive at Creative Industries Federation, the campaign aims to create a groundswell of support for the arts that will inform and inspire decision makers to get behind bringing the arts into prominence as a core part of the school curriculum.

Take part by shooting a short video clip describing #WhyArtsMatter to share on social media.
