Unifrog and Latymer Upper School are delighted to be hosting University Abroad, a free conference taking place at Latymer Upper School on the 27th June. Register your FREE place now using the links on the page.

With such a high standard of universities across the world offering English-taught undergraduate courses it’s no wonder more and more UK students are choosing to study abroad. This conference will bring together colleagues and expert speakers from across the UK and the world to discuss the benefits of studying abroad and explaining how to best guide students through the researching and application processes. Topics will include:

  • USA: How to navigate the complex process of applying to the USA and finding the right university

  • Australia and New Zealand: Learn why these destinations are ever popular and how to get there

  • Europe: Why our nearest neighbours should not be overlooked when considering university

  • Managing Transition: strategies to support your students' mental health in this tricky phase


This conference is for Heads of Sixth Form, Senior Leaders and colleagues involved in Careers and Progression.

Strictly limited to 70 delegates. This conference is expected to be very popular - secure your FREE place now by registering on this page.



Full Agenda:

08:30 - 09:15 Networking breakfast


09:15 - 09:55 USA:
Harvard, Yale... or Pomona College? The USA boasts many of the world's best universities, but finding the best fit for a particular student is tough. Arm yourself with what you need to know to support students through the dauting and complex application process and get your questions answered by experts in the field of university admissions.
Mikael Perreau, Senior Asst. Director of Admissions at NYU
Daniel De Witt, Director of Nemecek Bonas MacFarlane


09:55 - 10:25 Australia and New Zealand:
Home to numerous internationally prestigious, research-led universities that frequently rank among the best in the world. Learn more about the courses available, the application process, and the necessary financial information.
Sarah Nash, Director of Study Options


10:25 - 10:55 Managing the Transition:
A chance to look at the often neglected pastoral side of the major transition from school to university for young people. Even more relevant for students going overseas, this talk will also examine best practice support for students' mental health and resilience.
Peter Quinn, HE Student Support Consultant


10:55 - 11:10 Break with tea, coffee and biscuits


11:10 - 11:50 European Universities:
From the Netherlands to Norway there are hundreds of undergraduate programmes taught in English. Many are world-class, offer specialist training and cost much less than UK equivalents. This session will cover the pros and cons of studying in different European countries, as well as examining how to support students to make successful applications.
Anne Kuijs, International Recruitment at Tilburg University
David Hawkins, Director at Hawkins Global Education


11:50 - 13:10 Best Practice Workshops:
Facilitated by Unifrog's expert staff, these interactive sessions will help colleagues share best practice and techniques that they employ in the field of Careers and Higher Education Guidance - particularly in regards to opportunities overseas.
Daniel Keller, Business Development Manager at Unifrog
Nick Weir, London and Eastern Area Manager at Unifrog
