Event Details

We are delighted to invite you to attend a UK Education event on Monday 18 September at 6.30pm at Westridge School in the Pasadena area.

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:

University of Bristol

Durham University

Newcastle University

The University of Southampton

The University of Warwick  

University of York

The evening’s activities will be structured as follows:

6:15pm: Start of guest arrival

6:30 - 7:15pm: UCAS Personal Statement workshop

7:15 - 7:35pm: Study in the UK: Discover how a UK Education will get you a step ahead

7:35 - 8:00pm: Presentations from the individual BEST of U universities

8:00 - 9:00pm: Mini college fair: An opportunity to chat with university representatives individually

Who Can Attend?

Any student interested in UK Higher Education is invited. The event has been scheduled in the evening so that parents/guardians also have the opportunity to attend.

Please note - you do not have to be planning to attend one of the 6 attending Universities to attend, the information will be relevant regardless of the UK universities you wish to apply to.
