Richmond students get advice at college’s HE & Careers Fair

Friday 13 March 2020

On Tuesday 3 March, Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) students had the opportunity to meet universities, apprenticeship providers and employers at the annual internal Higher Education (HE) & Careers Fair.

40 universities from across London, England and Wales, including St Mary’s University, King’s College London, University of Bath and Cardiff University, attended the event. They informed students of all areas about higher education and which study options would suit their grades and career goals.

Mark Alger from Kingston University said, “As a university with a strong commitment to community engagement, it is a delight to attend events like these at local schools and colleges and represent Kingston University. Richmond upon Thames College students are always a pleasure to engage with; polite, inquisitive and full of great questions about their future educational options.”

In addition to universities, 18 employers and apprenticeship providers also exhibited, including RuTC’s apprenticeship and higher education team. Organisations included the Army and RAF, Kew Gardens, engineering company Worley Parsons, Chessington World of Adventures, Department for Works and Pensions and many more.

550 students from all areas of the college visited the HE & Careers Fair and engaged in conversations with exhibitors. Students found the event helpful as they gained a lot of information for their future education and career. Exhibitors were impressed by the students’ enthusiasm for a range of courses and industries and are looking forward to attending the event again next year.

The college also offers prospective students the opportunity to visit the new college campus, talk to teachers and get advice for their further education at upcoming Open Events, Saturday 21 March and Wednesday 25 March. Book your Open Event now.
