UniFest 2.0 –  25th-29th January 2021!

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’ve expanded to 20 institutions and changed the format: keeping the popular general presentations and current student engagement, but swapping to academic panel discussions, and introducing university presentations.
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
Speak to International Officers and academics from 20 UK universities across one week of webinars and interactive sessions.
