North West Universities visit St John Rigby College with Higher Education advice.

North West Universities visit St John Rigby College with Higher Education advice.

Last week the Year 12 had the opportunity to listen to different local universities tell them about applications to Higher Education.

Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool Hope University, Edgehill University and the University of Manchester were kind enough to come and present. The information was very useful to the students as they move into the early stages of universities applications.

The snow meant that Louise Carr from University of Liverpool was unable to present to Y12. She did make it through the snow. Thank you so much for your efforts Louise. We will re-schedule her visit she is free.

Here is Estelle Nolan from Hope University in the refectory after her morning talks. She enjoyed chatting to our students and felt the day had gone well.

Laura Cragg from the University of Manchester gave the student QR codes to use to get to the UCAS website and how to find their open events. You can use these to find out more information about UCAS and the University of Manchester.

Chris Mullen from the Outreach team at Edgehill enjoyed letting our students know what university can be like and how to apply.

Laura had lots of students taking leaflets about the University of Manchester. As you can see she enjoyed visiting St John Rigby college.

A massive thanks

We really appreciated all the universities coming and spending their time with our students and helping them on their journey. It never seems long enough that our students stay with us. We pack a lot in with them so they can decide if university, an apprenticeship or a job is the best place for them when they leave us. Don’t forget to look at our careers section on this website for more information about these choices. Click here
