Supporting underrepresented students progressing to Higher Education: White Working Class Males

This interactive workshop will present preliminary findings from an ethnographic study currently being conducted with white working-class students at a West Midlands school. The session will engage with wider national discourses surrounding white working-class males and educational success, exploring how such discourses are internalised and negotiated within the lived experiences of students. Attendees will have the opportunity to reflect on the national conversation, and how this might fit in to their local context as practitioners.

Student Finance

Delivered by Student Finance England, this workshop will provide the latest funding information for 2019/20 with the objective to help you in your work with advising prospective HE students.

Faculty of Education, Health and Wellbeing: Applying for Nursing and Midwifery degree courses

An opportunity to hear from our Institute of Health Professions team about the selection process for Nursing and Midwifery, including what they're looking for from applicants both within the personal statement and at the interview day.
