Wiltshire College Higher Education Week (Yr 11 - 13, 8-15th March 2021)

Wiltshire College is currently hosting a Progression Month to help you with your journey into further and higher education (post-16 and post-18).

Progression Month is all about helping students move forward onto their prospective careers or find pathways into the next stage of their education. We’ve got a wide range of action-packed activities for all students to get involved in over the next few weeks, and will be hosting over 65 talks including university advice, guest speakers, virtual tours, finance advice and much more.

This year, Progression Month coincides with National Apprenticeship Week, National Careers Week and Higher Education Week, so we’ll be bringing you a variety of exciting and helpful live talks and online resources revolving around these themes.

Higher Education Week is all about exploring the wide variety of opportunities that are available after second-level education.

Going to university will help you study something you love doing, get a taste of independence, gain a recognised qualification, develop your skills, increase your earning potential, and yes, student life!

Over the course of the week, there will be a series of talks and rescources offering tips on making decisions, life at University, applying to HE, and what to expect throughout the process. We have over 12 universities visiting, and our very own superb H.E team.
