Glasgow Caledonian University will be taking part in an Applying To University Webinar Series taking place on the 6th of October 2020.
We will run one webinar during school hours between 13:00 -14:00 and a second in the evening between 19:00 – 20:00 to maximise the opportunity for your students to engage with us. Students are welcome to attend whatever time slot suits them best, the content for both sessions will be identical.
These webinars, run in collaboration with 15 other Scottish universities, will provide the opportunity for your students to learn about the process of applying to university in Scotland, including advice and guidance on the UCAS process, insight into student life, tips for crafting a personal statement and much, much more. Information on funding for Scottish students and contact details for each university will also be offered to attendees.
The webinars will be staffed by a variety of different Universities with a Q&A running throughout the full hour, which means students will have the chance to ask specific questions about studying at university in general or with any one of us in particular.
Your students can sign up for these webinars using this link Sign Up Here and following the webinar, an email will be issued which contains a list of all the universities and subjects they offer, enabling students to make an informed choice as to where their future lies in Scotland.
