Current News Series

Book your space on our "Current News" webinar series here. Unsure of what subject you’d like to study at University? Our current News Webinar Series takes place at various times though-out the year to give you a flavor of the different subjects that we offer. 

These are a fantastic way to get a feel for what university lectures are like, perhaps explore several subjects of interest to start narrowing down your choices, or have a great experience to mention on your personal statement. Live sessions are a great way to interact with our academics and get all your questions answered.
