Higher Education Advice and Guidance in the Sixth Form
There are various events during Y12, alongside developmental individual guidance, to help prepare students for making informed and realistic Higher Education decisions in the autumn term.
Academics from over 40 universities are invited to LaSWAP in June to talk about what their subject involves at degree level. Representatives from other organisations (e.g. taking a gap year, jobs in finance, studying abroad and hearing from ex-LaSWAP students about their experiences) also attend. This complements the annual UCAS Higher Convention at Olympia in April, where students can talk more generally to universities from all over the United Kingdom and beyond about what they offer.
LaSWAP also runs an extensive programme of university visits in June and July at the end of year 12. In 2013 we visited Brunel, King's, Queen Mary and Sussex for tailor made LaSWAP visits and also Leeds university open day. In previous years we have also visited Nottingham and Manchester for similar open days.
In addition every year there are trips to both Oxford and Cambridge universities.
