The annual Ashbourne UCAS Day took place earlier this momth, and was a great success!
The UCAS day, with Push Talks, is arranged once a year to provide AS students with extra information to prepare them for the university applications process.
During the day, Push gave talks on how to apply for university, the best way for students to pick a university that is right for them, and how to write a personal statement.
After the talks, Assistant Director of Studies Rob Kocho, conducted a personal statement workshop and advised all students to begin thinking about their personal statements over the summer break.
We had a turn out of 60 students, which is a fantastic number. Of those who attended, 93% of students rated the talk 5/5, and 100% of students said they felt better informed about their options after the talks.
What’s great is that many of the students who attended liked it so much, they’d like Push to come back to deliver further sessions!
One of the most important reasons why we hold UCAS days, is to make sure students gain as much knowledge as possible in order to make informed choices about their post 18 education. Thanks to the information provided by Push on the day, a number of students who were considering a gap year, have since decided that they would like to go straight to university instead. Great news!
Here are a few pictures from the day
