Event description

Description

As part of the European Social Fund project, Widening Participation Through Skills in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly as a part of 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme in England the University of Exeter will run a range of workshops that have a focus on developing skills for people who are looking to return to education, giving practical advice and guidance.

This higher level skills event will give you all the information you need to know about university life, from finance to different areas to study. You can take the time to learn some valuable study skills and you will have the opportunity to look at the facilities on campus with some of our ambassadors who have taken alternative routes to Higher Education. This fully funded one day event includes a networking lunch with a range of organisations offering advice and guidance in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

This FREE course is available to those who live in Cornwall and do not currently hold a level four (Degree's, BTEC professional diplomas, NVQs at Level 4 and Certificates of Higher Education) qualification who are looking to upskill into Higher Education routes. You will need to bring one of the following to the event for registration;

  • National Insurance Card
  • Passport (EU member)
  • Passport (non-EU member)
  • HMRC Letter
  • UK Immigration Letter
  • Residency Permit
  • Birth/Adoption Certificate
