Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

Young peo­ple across Ren­frew­shire can find out more about univer­sity, col­lege and ca­reers at a higher ed­u­ca­tion ex­hi­bi­tion on Tues­day.

The UCAS event, in as­so­ci­a­tion with Skills Devel­op­ment Scot­land (SDS), is at the SECC, in Ex­hi­bi­tion Way, Glas­gow.

It brings to­gether rep­re­sen­ta­tives from 50 higher and fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions in Scot­land and else­where.

They will be on hand to of­fer lo­cal young peo­ple ad­vice as well as in­for­ma­tion on cour­ses, and tra­di­tional and al­ter­na­tive routes into learn­ing.

UCAS ad­vis­ers will be avail­able to ad­vise on re­search­ing and ap­ply­ing to univer­sity.

There will also be sem­i­nars on per­sonal state­ments, women in engi­neer­ing, nurs­ing and op­por­tu­ni­ties abroad.

SDS na­tional op­er­a­tions ex­ec­u­tive Luisa Moreno said:“De­cid­ing which course, univer­sity, col­lege, or ca­reer to choose is one of the most im­por­tant de­ci­sions peo­ple make.

“By hav­ing all the in­for­ma­tion and ex­perts in one place, the ex­hi­bi­tion of­fers young peo­ple and their par­ents to help them make that vi­tal de­ci­sion.

“We know that many fifth and sixth year pupils from lo­cal schools will be com­ing along, but would also like to wel­come any­one in­ter­ested in find­ing out about higher ed­u­ca­tion, in­clud­ing par­ents, car­ers and col­lege stu­dents.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion will run from 9.30am un­til 3pm.
