Session 1 - How to Get Offers from Competitive London Universities
Presented by our special guest Stephen Martin, who has worked as Head of Sixth Form in some of the top schools in the world including Kellett School, Hong Kong and St Christopher’s School Bahrain, and has prepared hundreds of students for entry to the world’s leading universities. In unprecedented times of competition for university places in the UK and as one of the most popular study destinations in the world, London universities are some of the hardest to get into. This talk will cover what a competitive application looks like and how to get offers at your top choice London university.
Session 2 - Understanding UK University Fee Status
If you are a British or Irish expat family and you are living abroad or planning to in the future, when your children plan to come back to the UK for university they may be considered overseas fee-payers and have to pay up to £350,000 for their degree - but this can be avoided with preparation and guidance. In this talk we will translate the jargon and dispel the myths around fee status. We'll help you understand how the rules apply to you while you're living abroad and will offer tips on how you can avoid losing your home fee eligibility.
