Access Your Future

On 16th October, Linking London, supported by OCN London, ran the successful 'Access your Future' day with over 300 students and staff attending. ‘Access your Future’ was a one day event solely for pre-Access and Access to HE Diploma college students studying in London. The day focussed on supporting students in making their HE choices as well as applying and preparing for the transition to HE

During the day, there was a HE fair where college students could talk to London HEIs on a one to one basis about their course offer. There were also various workshop sessions that students could attend with help around personal statement writing and life as a mature HE student. Throughout the day we also had several campus tours running from Birkbeck University, SOAS and UCL. A staff member from City University said ‘Thank you so much for inviting us to the event – it was a fantastic day and much busier than we expected so we are really pleased!’ 

There were also drop in information and advice sessions to provide students with the opportunity to ask any questions about applying to HE and to have their personal statement looked at by a member of staff from a HEI. We received some excellent feedback from students who attended who said they would recommend this event to other Access students - ‘A great opportunity for Access students to get useful information about financial support and entry requirements’. Due to the success of the event we plan to run this event next year at a similar time, so watch this space!
