BEST of U - New York City
Sat 15 October 2016, 11:30 – 14:00 EDT
We are delighted to invite you to attend a UK Education event on Saturday 15th October at 11:30am at Downtown Conference Center, 157 William St, NYC, 10038.
Going to university in another country is an exciting life-changing adventure. If you are considering overseas study as your next step, do not miss this chance to meet 6 of the top UK universities and find out more about the opportunities available. All of the BEST of U Universities are ranked amongst the top 150 in the world and are based in six very different locations spread across England, so you can be sure of a world-leading education in a new and exciting city.
The UK is an increasingly popular study destination for US students due to its reputation for world-class education. In England, degree programmes are shorter in length as there are no general studies - you specialise from day one through to graduation in the subjects that interest you. Students coming to England to study can expect to achieve a Bachelor's degree in three years and a Master's degree in just one year, making the UK a far more affordable option than you might expect.
The 6 Russell Group Universities attending are as follows:
The morning/afternoon’s activities will be structured as follows:
11am: Start of guest arrival
11:30-12:15pm: UCAS Personal Statement workshop
