The Lower Sixth have been engaging in a series of Higher Education preparation activities this week.

We were delighted to welcome the University of Sheffield, who led a session on academic writing in preparation for undergraduate study. In addition, they presented on applying to the Russell Group, fostering a sense of excitement about future destinations. Those interested in Medicine were hard at work preparing for UCAT/BMAT, while Law applicants began their preparation for the LNAT. US applicants engaged with sessions on the Common Application, Personal Essay and Supplementary Essay and there were sessions on making applications to Canada and Europe. Ms Graham gave an inspirational talk about the value of a Study Abroad year at university. There were also a wide variety of university preparation sessions delivered by a whole host of Godolphin and Latymer staff. Pupils took part in a workshop aimed at developing their communication skills, which they will hopefully put to good use whilst developing their EE vivas, EPQ presentations and interviews.

They are in a good position to research their higher education options with many planning on attending university open days in the next few weeks.
