UCAS Exhibitions

UCAS organise public exhibitions across the UK every year.  If you are interested in attending an exhibition this year but are unable to join the Mascalls Academy Sixth Form trip, check out other dates on the UCAS website.

The Kent and Medway Progression Foundation has some useful guides to Higher Education for students, staff, parents and carers, which can be found here KMPF Guides to HE

A presentation on preparing to apply to universities, was given to staff and year 13 students who attend Schools within the Leigh Academies Trust recently.  The slides on the three subjects that were covered in that presentation, are shown below.
