University of Bath update

Posted by heo

I also wanted to let you know about a brand-new International Summer School for students looking to start their undergraduate degrees in 2022. Across the whole programme, we have 5 subject streams on offer:

  • Robotics Engineering
  • Education
  • Biosciences
  • Pharmacy & Pharmacology
  • Business & Management (excluding Accounting & Finance).

The programme is virtual and free of charge and is open to all students who are academically able to study at Bath in their chosen subject. All students must also be able to show evidence of their English proficiency with an IELTS 5.5 overall or an equivalent qualification. If a student completes the International Summer School, including the sessions and activities that are included, they will be guaranteed to receive an offer for a place to study at Bath. This is on the condition that they meet the academic requirements necessary, a UCAS application is submitted by the UCAS equal consideration deadline and the subject stream they undertook as part of the International Summer School is for the degree they apply for.

I have attached more details and the link below – I would appreciate it if you are able to share this with any students that this may be of interest to. The deadline to apply is the 20th June and application outcomes will be communicated by 6th July.

We’re very keen to support your students, so please do let me know if I can be of assistance at all.

International Summer School Applications Open!
International Summer School
A free, online programme for Year 12 (or equivalent) international students during which they can find out what it’s like to be a student at the University.

The International Summer School is a free, online programme focusing on five course areas offered at the University, consisting of a programme of academic activities, general sessions on applying to and studying in the UK and having contact with current students at the University.

Students will also be able to engage with their peers looking to studying a similar course as them.

Successful completion of the programme will give them access to a guaranteed conditional offer for 2022 entry.

This year’s summer school will take place from Monday 2 to Friday 6 August 2021.

Business & Management webinar 22nd June – Royal Holloway

Posted by heo

I hope that you are well and having a lovely week? I just wanted to send a quick email to flag an exciting webinar which I’ve been organising, as your students might find it interesting!

The webinar will introduce our School of Business and Management. There will be two taster seminars and a Q&A session with international alumni/students. I’ve attached the promotional flyer (below) and I’d be very grateful if you could share it with your students. Further information and the registration link can be found here: will close at 3pm UK time on Friday!

UniFest Clearing and Confirmation Hub

Posted by heo

The UniFest Team wanted to make you aware that we are planning on holding three UniFest clearing events to target the results days for IB, HKDSE and A-levels. Although we hope that your students will not need to use the clearing services, we want to make sure that we are here for them and happy to help them in whatever way possible.

Our first briefing session will take place on 30 June 2021 at 19:00 Hong Kong time.

Whilst the 3 sessions will be tailored slightly towards the IB, HKDSE and A Level results days, the content for each briefing will be similar, so students are welcome to attend any one, or multiple briefings.
To register for the event, students can visit our Eventbrite page. This can also be accessed via the QR code on the attached poster.
Myself (Nottingham), David (NTU) and Charlotte (Loughborough) are in the initial stages of organising the event so further details will follow over the next few weeks/months, however we just wanted to give you a heads up about the event as I know some of you may already be thinking about clearing and what support students will need.
The initial thinking is to host a live event 1 week prior to each results day which the UniFest team will go through all the basics and more around clearing. So things like;
  • What is clearing
  • How to apply through clearing
  • How to search for a course through clearing
  • How to contact universities
  • Adjustment/changing your program
  • How to submit your documents
  • Paying any deposits
  • Obtaining your CAS
  • How to prepare for your Student Visa
We will also aim to cover other areas as well, however if there are any other areas which you may think would be useful please let us know and we will try and include this as well.
Once the live session has finished, we will upload the recording to our event page and it will allow students to view the recording up to 7 days after the session. When students sign up for the event, they will also receive a document which will have a list of all the universities taking part, with their contact details and information on how to apply through clearing to their university.
After the live session has taken place the week before results day and students have registered for the event, students will then be able to book 1-2-1 sessions with all of the universities taking part to discuss their clearing options. The idea is that when students have these 1-2-1 meetings, the university reps will be able to make on the spot offers, however we will confirm this in the document so students are aware of this. The universities taking part will be the same universities from September 2020 and January 2021 with also a few added universities as well, so a good broad range of universities.
I hope this event will be useful for you and the students. Looking forward to hearing from you if you do have any feedback, otherwise we will be in touch soon with further information.
