University in the USA - Both the Basics and Beyond

Adviser Training Conference

Organised by the US-UK Fulbright Commission, Uni in the USA Wellington College 

Why Attend?

This conference has become a must-attend event for any school with students interested in applying to the States. This year we’ve again assembled admissions experts from some of the top American universities who will be offering parallel sessions covering every angle of the process. Whether you are a seasoned expert or the new kid on the block, there will be a range of sessions on specific areas of financial aid, the application process, and a glimpse behind the admissions office doors. From plenaries to breakout workshops, the sessions will allow you to tailor your conference experience to your interests and let you get the most out of this line-up of speakers.

Date: Friday, 29 September, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm 

Registration to open at 9:00 am for a prompt 9:20 am start. The conference will end at 4:00 pm just before our USA College Day university fair. Conference attendees will be walked over to the fair at 4:00 pm when the conference ends, and they will beat the public with priority entry! 

Location: Holiday Inn London - Kensington High St. (closest tube: High Street Kensington in Central London)
