Event description

Description

HELOA London Group is proud to host the fifth annual HE Awareness Day for students from a care background and their carers. Social workers and Virtual Heads are also encouraged to attend with the young people they work with to learn more about what universities in London offer their students.

Hosted by London Metropolitan University, the event will provide students with a taste of university and the opportunity to speak to Widening Participation Staff, recruitment staff and care experienced students from a range of London universities.

Sessions will include:

  • How to apply and support for Care Leavers
  • Why go to uni?
  • Care Leaver student panel (students only)
  • How to support your young person to uni/ staff Q&A (for virtual school staff, social workers, foster carers and other support workers)
  • Which course? Which uni?
  • Financial support and how to budget
  • Taster lecture and campus tour

The event is free of charge, including lunch, and open to all United Kingdom students. HELOA London can also reimburse part or whole travel costs for students up to a limit. Please get in touch before booking travel tickets to confirm this.

Please note that any adults should accompany at least one student, and either book a group ticket or book on behalf of students if they are unable to do this themselves. If you are unable to bring a student but would like to attend please contact us.
