Join the British Council, UCAS and the University of Exeter on Wednesday, September 20th for the first in a series of three webinars to support counsellors through the admissions process for UK universities and colleges.

In this webinar, we’ll introduce studying an undergraduate course in the UK, and the vital research stage that all students need to complete. We’ll cover the basics of  applying, ahead of the early 15 October deadline which applies to the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and courses in medicine, veterinary medicine/science, and dentistry. We’ll also highlight the new Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) which has recently been introduced in the UK.

A representative from the University of Exeter will also be taking part in the session to provide their perspective on the topics raised. 

Ahead of the webinar, please email any specific questions or topics you would like covered to Jenna.Hartsell@britishcouncil.org.
