Event description
Bringing schools and universities together to help students of Mandarin Chinese progress in to Higher Education

About this Event

The UCL IOE Confucius Institute for Schools is thrilled to announce that we are hosting our fifth Schools and Universities Day on Friday 31st January 2020.

We are seeing an increasing number of students interested in studying Mandarin at university level, and this event provides a unique opportunity for dialogue between students and university representatives.

So far, we have over 15 universities confirmed to be attending, including: Cambridge, Durham, Edinburgh, Leeds and SOAS. The final, full list will be confirmed in due course.

Here is an example agenda:

Morning Session

- Arrival and registration

- Networking/conversation with other delegates

- Teachers and universities: group discussion about studying Mandarin at university

- Students: presentations from, and discussion with, current university students

LUNCH

Afternoon Session

- Universities fair: students to talk with universities (teachers and parents to supervise)

Please note, a finalised agenda will be circulated in advance of the event.

Feedback from the previous four events has been overwhelmingly positive, with schools, pupils and universities all stating that they found the day both extremely beneficial and also enjoyable. Here is a small cross-section of comments from feedback forms:

• "The university fair was very useful because it gave me a good idea of the different types of course that different universities had to offer and so has helped my decision in which university/course to do".

• "The university fair … gave me a real insight into what I could do with a Chinese degree and what was on offer from universities".

• "The university fair was useful as I had the chance personally to ask questions about what other courses would involve. I was able to find a few places of possible interest".

• "[Thanks to] The university fair I got to see the ways in which you can continue Mandarin after school and see the different opportunities universities are giving along with Mandarin".
