New College Futures Fair 2018

New College Futures Fair 2018

Students at New College were treated to a wealth of information today at the third-annual Futures Fair. The cafeteria was transformed in to an exhibition space where close to 50 stands popped up, with local businesses and higher education institutions talking through all the opportunities for students once they’ve finished life at New College.

Whether students want to continue their career in education or go straight in to working life, all the information they could have possibly needed was on offer at New College’s Futures Fair.

Universities from around the country were in attendance to answer any questions students may have had about going on to study at degree level. There was also information about apprenticeships and other training providers, meaning whatever their plans for their future, there was the opportunity to talk to the right people.

There were also university talks from 1-2pm after the fair, with Bournemouth, Portsmouth and Gloucestershire universities. The talks touched on 'Student Life' and 'How to Choose the Right Course'.

As New College also provide courses for post A-Level life, there were also their own stands providing information about Media Make-up HND/HNC, Apprenticeships and Career Advice. 

It was a real pleasure to see the students engage with the exhibitors, we managed to overhear lots of excited conversations. New College truly is a fantastic platform for people who want to carve out a new future for themselves.
