Parents Evening at Keele University

University event offered by Keele University

Event Summary:

Parents and guardians with a son or daughter considering their next step after school or college are invited to an event at Keele University on Wednesday 6 March from 6.30pm.

Full Event Details:

The event brings together the two local universities, Keele and Staffordshire, and will provide parents with an understanding of higher education and opportunity to find out what is available locally.

The evening will include talks on how to research higher education choices, the funding available for students and detailsmon the application process. It will provide a useful introduction to the calendar of activities the students will be following and which may include attendance at the Staffordshire Higher Education Convention on Wednesday 27 March. For many this will be the first opportunity for the Year 12 students to start their research into higher education, with over 100 universities and colleges represented. The event, hosted at Staffordshire University, will give the students chance to talk to staff from universities, collect prospectuses and attend a range of subject seminars.

The event on 6 March, at the Sustainability Hub on Keele campus, will give parents an insight into the questions their son or daughter should be asking and the processes involved in applying to university. Most importantly they will be able to ask questions of Parent Ambassadors, who themselves have recent experience of supporting a child through higher education and are willing to talk about issues around finance, safety and ‘empty nest syndrome’.

The evening will run from 6.30-9.00pm with light refreshments provided, students are welcome to attend and there is no charge for attending the event.
