What’s Uni?

for Year 9 students and a parent/carer
University of Essex, Southend Campus
Friday 16 – Sunday 18 August

 

A great opportunity for year 9 students and a parent/carer to live the student life, stay in our en-suite student accommodation and talk to current university students.

Packed with information and taster sessions, the programme is designed to help you plan the best route to achieve your career ambitions.

Journey: You will learn about the options available after GCSEs, how they relate to university and the application process to get there.

Finance: We know money matters when it comes to university. So, you will be given the chance to put your budgeting skills into action, planning and preparing your own evening meal.

Life: Student life is not all hard work and neither is our ‘What’s Uni?’ weekend. You’ll have lots of fun - learning and socialising together with time to enjoy Southend in the summertime!
