More than 60 universities from the UK, as well as representatives from Australia and New Zealand, will be coming to Jersey to take part in the annual Higher Education Fair.
Taking place at Hautlieu School on Thursday 11 March, the event has secured significant sponsorship from Capita Fiduciary Group which has its head office in Jersey.
In addition to giving the Island’s students a chance to find out more about the universities on show, there will be a range of special seminars providing information on topics such as how to choose a course and university, teaching and on subjects such as teaching, veterinary medicine & law.
While in the Island, university representatives will also be visiting schools to give talks and lead interactive workshops to encourage students, aged 14 and above, to think about higher education and the options available to them.
“The fair gives local students a great opportunity to talk directly to universities about their options and start to gain varied and extensive information that will help them make important decisions that lie ahead of them,” said Careers Jersey’s Alan Williams.
CEO of Capita Fiduciary Group, Anthony O’Keeffe, said “We are delighted to sponsor the Higher Education Fair which plays an important role in helping our local students make an informed decision about their further education and ultimately, their future. Hopefully, this generation will return to Jersey and their skills and experience will contribute to the continued success of our Island."
The Higher Education Fair will take place at Hautlieu School on Thursday 11 March from 1.30 to 6.30 pm.
