Cardiff University’s Medicine Taster Days (Friday 22 June and Saturday 23 June 2018, Heath Park Campus)

Bookings are now open for Cardiff University’s Medicine Taster Days (Friday 22 June and Saturday 23 June 2018, Heath Park Campus).  

 Cardiff’s Medicine Taster Days offer you a choice of two identical days packed with Medicine-related activities and talks.  Each day we run one programme specifically for students alongside another tailored to the needs of those who support them.

•             Our full-day Student Programme covers key elements of becoming a doctor, with talks on our selection process, life as a doctor, funding for your medical degree, Case Based Learning and a Q&A panel as well as workshops covering Clinical Skills, Simulation Suite, life as a medical student, Multiple Mini Interviews (MMIs) and writing your personal statement. We also provide you with lunch and plenty of opportunity to talk to our students about what medical school is really like.

•             Our separate, full-day Accompanying Person’s programme, designed for a parent, guardian, careers advisor or teacher, covers most of the same subjects but from an angle that looks at the support they, and we, can provide over the next few years.

Prospective medical students are invited to bring one parent, guardian, careers advisor or teacher with them but are also welcome to come on their own.  Individual teachers, careers advisors or parents can also attend without a student if they wish.

For those who plan to come to Cardiff with more than one accompanying person, we can assure you that Cardiff is a safe, vibrant and lively city, with a fantastic, walkable city centre and enough going on to keep people of all ages busy for the day – please see http://www.visitcardiff.com<http://www.visitcardiff.com> for more ideas.

Tickets for this popular event are free but do need to be booked: https://cumedicine2018.eventbrite.co.uk

Berkhamsted School – Higher Education, Careers, Apprenticeship and Gap Year Fair

Berkhamsted School, extend a warm invitation to students, to our Higher Education, Careers, Apprenticeship and Gap Year Fair, held at our Castle Campus on Thursday 22nd March 2018 between 6.00pm and 8.30pm.  With over 100 exhibitors from universities, colleges, professions, apprenticeships and gap year organisations, we hope that the evening will prove a worthwhile event for everyone, especially those Y11 – Y13 students (and their parents) who are making important decisions about their future.  To enable students to plan for the evening please find attached a list of the exhibitors at the fair.

We are running talks from the University of Cambridge focusing on the Oxbridge application progress, along with Education and Employers, talking about the current situation on apprenticeships and the process for applications and IBM will be letting us know about their apprenticeship and gap year opportunities. We also have a talk for any student who is thinking about taking a Gap Year, from Go Mad in Tanzania, looking at how to stay safe while away.

The event will take place at Castle Campus, Castle Street, Berkhamsted, HP4 2BB.  Unfortunately there will be no parking on the site for the evening, and so ask that you direct any visitors to the public car parks behind Tesco, access from the High Street, via Water Lane, or from Castle Street via Mill Street. Alternatively, there is parking in Lower Kings Road. Both car parks are normally free after 6pm (but please check).
