UCAS Week 2016
Aimed at giving year 12 a head start prior to the busy beginnings of year 13, UCAS Week helps students explore the various options that will be available to them after leaving school. Of course as the name suggests a large part of this is dedicated to university applications and this year was no different with sessions on: how to approach the personal statement; Oxbridge; Art School; and applying to university in the US. Visiting speakers from various institutions enlightened students on what to expect from undergraduate study there and they were also able to ask questions and start to consolidate their opinions about which universities to aim for.
MPW parents are always fully involved in UCAS Week with this year’s evening parental seminar fully subscribed as always. We are also very grateful to the parents who gave up their time and came in to talk to students for Careers Afternoon. Our year 12s were able to learn more about a number of different careers with seminars running on architecture, engineering, law, finance, fashion, medicine, advertising and journalism to name but a few. The talks were interesting and enlightening and we were very privileged to have so many professionals taking part.
This is year 12’s final commitment before the summer vacation – so we now wish you all well and hope you enjoy an entertaining and restful break before we see you again in September. MPW remains open over the summer and the Directors of Studies will still be on hand to answer any questions you have should you need us.
