Over 2000 year 12 students got a taste of university life at Middlesex University as part of the North London Higher Education Fair.
The event, now in its 17th year, gave students the opportunity to meet with representatives from more than 70 universities nationwide and professional bodies as they prepare to make important decisions about their future.
As well as subject presentations and specialist career advice, students also had fun with Middlesex’s football-playing robots, engaged with each other on social media in a ‘selfie’ challenge, and competed against each other in a range of sporting demonstrations.
Students from across 10 London boroughs including Barnet, Enfield, and Haringey took part in the event. Schools attending included Hendon School, Barnet and Southgate College, Whitefield School, Haringey Sixth Form, Kingsmead School and Hornsey Sixth Form College.
Middlesex University Education Liaison and Outreach Manager Elita Eliades-Ahmed said: “We were extremely proud to welcome so many students on to our campus. We feel this is a vital opportunity for students to research their choices by speaking to a large number of universities and attending subject talks delivered by academic experts. It was great to see how motivated and enthused students were by participating in the talks and experiencing a taste of university life on the campus.”
