Thursday 25th June, 2020 at 7:00pm
with Sam Banks and Susie Cochin de Billy, Higher Education Consultants at Holland Park
Join us on the 25th June for a special presentation from Sam and Susie on what is means to embark on a university experience at home and abroad, how to choose the right path and how to prepare for applications to the top institutions in both countries.
Hosted via Zoom, Sam and Susie will guide us through the elements of the applications, how to prepare, what to think about in choosing a university, tackling tours, personal essays, and what it takes to stand out.
