University Information Evening

If your child is thinking about progressing onto degree level study after their college course, we would love to invite you to our University Information Evening for parents and carers on Thursday 30th November, 5.30pm – 8pm. 

The event is a great opportunity for you to find out more about higher education and the UCAS application process, and hear from Student Finance England about the cost of going to university and the funding options available. You will also be able to ask any questions you have during our Parents Q&A session.  

What are the benefits of studying at university?

Hear from Jess Newton, Chester Hub Project Officer at Higher Horizons+  explain some of the many benefits of studying at university.
