Journey to Higher Education Webinar Series

Journey to Higher Education Webinar Series

Students, parents and carers are invited to join us to hear from university staff and student ambassadors, to find out more about the UCAS application process, higher education, and have their questions answered.
 
Students wishing to attend should register individually. These events are not open to group bookings, although teachers and advisers are very welcome to attend.

Queen Mary is pleased to have launched a series of webinars designed to support students from KS4 and KS5, and parents and carers, to understand the journey to higher education. We hope these webinars can offer invaluable support in the lead up, and transition to, higher education. At Queen Mary, we want to make the process as clear as possible. 

To complement this series, we are also running a number of student-led events, offering the opportunity to hear about similar topics from the point of view of our current students.

Students should register individually for the webinars they wish to attend. Teachers and advisers are very welcome to attend but are unable to book on behalf of a student or group of students.

Below you will find a list of all upcoming webinars, as well as on-demand recordings of previous events.
