Save the date - Scottish Education Exhibition
The school received this message this week and wanted to share with everyone.
I’m excited to let you know about plans to host a free, virtual Scottish Education Exhibition in September for senior phase pupils across Scotland who are considering their pathways to further and higher education.
The event will take place on Thursday 9 September from 10am – 7pm and we hope schools will set aside time on this day for pupils to attend.
The Scottish Education Exhibition is being hosted by 14 Scottish universities, three colleges, SDS and SAAS. It will give senior phase pupils the chance to chat to representatives from each of the institutions, view information and videos, download prospectuses and join live webinars covering subjects including:
We appreciate that it’s difficult to make decisions about further study when there’s still uncertainty around open days and large-scale events. The Scottish Education Exhibition is being designed with pupils in mind to provide them with everything they need to make the right decisions and their next steps.
How to book
Pupils will need to book their own space at the event but the registration process will be simple and straightforward.
We’ll share details as soon as the booking opens but please put the date in your diary. On-the-day booking will also be available but we’d advise pupils to book in advance.
