Mini UK University and Foundation Program Fair on April 30

The College Counseling Office will host a Mini UK University and Foundation Program Fair in the Palmer Center on Monday, April 30, from 18:30–19:40. This is a required event for all juniors applying to the UK, but all other High School students and parents are also encouraged to attend. It will provide participants an insight into the range of higher education provision in the UK (state, private, and foundation) commonly attended by TASIS students. The following representatives from UK universities will be in attendance:

The program will be divided into three sections:

1) The representatives will briefly describe their institutions and the programs they offer. They will also explain what they look for in applicants and discuss the content of personal statements.

2) A panel question-and-answer session will allow participants to ask general questions about universities in the UK, the application process, etc.

3) Students and parents will have an opportunity to speak to the representatives individually, ask more specific questions, collect brochures, etc.
