The UCAS convention in the University of Birmingham gave me the opportunity to accesses the different Universities that I may consider applying to as I come to the end of MY Yr13 studies. Various Universities were present to talk about what they offer and why they believe they offer the best courses and support to their students. It was a busy day and thousands of students from the West Midlands descended on the campus.

Prospectuses were available from all the University and I have been steadily making my way through them all. The day also helped me to get to know more about University life. It motivated me to work harder at my A levels as University life seems so fun and I cannot wait to get there!

Overall the highlight of the day was being in the University of Birmingham which is a top redbrick University. This motivated me to apply to the University and continue my education to the higher level and gave me the rare opportunities that I might not get elsewhere.

I felt that I really benefitted from the day and it has played a significant part in my University and course choice. I know the other students also gained a lot from the day.
