Event description
Experience university life, meet others and find out more about the support that is available for students with long term health conditions.

About this Event

“We received a lot of valuable information about how to cope with our conditions whilst at uni”

Visit a university campus and find out more about what university life is like:

  • Get information about if, how and when to talk to universities about your health condition before and/or after you apply.
  • Hear about the range of support universities can offer to make sure your university experience is a great one. This will include information about the specific funding available to students with long term health conditions.
  • Learn more about choosing accommodation, and what options are available.
  • Meet current students and hear about their experiences and gain some tips for making the most of university.

The day is aimed at students in year 10 – year 13, but is open to everyone up to the age of 25.

London MET is kindly hosting the event, but this does not mean that you need to be interested in applying to this university, or even one in London, to come along. Anyone with arthritis or a similar condition is welcome, whatever universities you might be thinking of applying to.

“Good guidance on helping to prepare for university”

“I knew that lots of these services were available, just not how to access them”

(Quotes from those who attended the University & Me event in 2018)
