The Huddle CPD DAY

More and more UK students are asking about their study abroad options. Over the last five years the number of UK students studying abroad has increased year-on-year; according to UNESCO Institute for Statistics a whopping 31,078 UK students studied abroad in 2017. Furthermore, a recent survey conducted by The Student World, showed that a massive 73% of students (from years 11-13) would consider studying overseas.


So how do we best advise students and ensure they are equipped with all the information they need to make an informed decision about their study abroad options? This event will provide a platform to learn about the opportunities, the processes and the reasons why students should consider going abroad for their education.


The day starts with speakers from the careers profession who have been there and done it! There are also Seminars from University Representatives and Government Agencies. Join us as they share their insights, which will help you build and deliver a study abroad strategy as part of your successful schools and colleges careers programme.

One to One Meetings...

The one to one meetings with university admissions' representatives provide the perfect opportunity for you to learn first hand about the varying application processes and gain an insight into what they are looking for in an application. Each session will consist of 6 x 15 minute meetings during which time you can ask the university representatives absolutely anything you like - they're there to answer your questions! It's also a great opportunity to build networks and relationships so you have expertise on hand to answer any questions you may have in the future.

Networking...

Opportunities are provided throughout the day during the 'networking' periods, to speak direct with university admissions representatives and government agencies, as well as build a network of support and information exchange via other career advisers in attendance.
