Anglia Ruskin ready to tour the region offering advice on Higher Education
Anglia Ruskin University’s big green roadshow bus will be offering advice and guidance about Higher Education to school pupils in the East of England when it hits the road this summer.
Recent legislative changes now mean that schools and colleges are responsible for delivering information about careers and further study directly to their students, rather than using external careers advisors.
Anglia Ruskin’s roadshow bus will aim to offer a helping hand when it visits 28 schools and colleges across the region between now and 7 July.
Rachel Nedwell, who is responsible for outreach at Anglia Ruskin, said:
Staff on the bus will offer youngsters guidance on how to apply to university, including help with writing a personal statement, and information on student finance. Current students will be on hand to offer a personal insight into university life and there will be a number of subject-specific talks from Anglia Ruskin academics.In addition to its visits to school and colleges, the roadshow bus will also be pulling into Southend-on-Sea, Cambridge, Chelmsford, Stevenage, Peterborough, Luton, and King’s Lynn for special weekend and bank holiday events. As well as information about the range of undergraduate degrees, the public will also be able to find out more about the postgraduate and part-time courses on offer at Anglia Ruskin.
