Posted by heo

Following the success of our September event, I’m delighted to announce UniFest 2.0 –  25th-29th January 2021!
 
After nearly 600 students participated in September, we’ve taken the strengths, listened to the feedback and we’re back – bigger and better.

We will have a dual focus, with new sessions designed for graduating students and their parents who have submitted their UCAS and are looking at next steps, as well as sessions aimed at younger year groups who are beginning their HE research.
 
I have attached the brochure introducing the week, and we would love for you to share this with your student and parent communities, and encourage them to sign up through the Eventbrite page: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/uk-unifest-hong-kong-20-tickets-130252547877
