360 Degrees (Previously UCAS2)

360 Degrees (previously UCAS2) will take place on Friday 21 June 2019, 7-9pm,

360 Degrees is a valuable opportunity for current Lower Sixth boys to meet with both OAs and teachers to discuss particular subject areas and universities that interest them. We are therefore reaching out to OAs, who would be able to pass on first-hand knowledge and advice to these boys about specific degree subjects, the application process, final preparations and university life in general.

360 Degrees is the title for the new format of what was previously known as UCAS2. Rebranded in order to encapsulate the well rounded approach to university applications that we encourage our Sixth Form boys to take in order to make fully-informed decisions, the event will take the form of networking evening.

OAs will be divided into subject ‘spheres’, giving you the opportunity to catch up with other OAs undertaking similar courses, alongside promoting an atmosphere that stimulates broader conversations.

Current pupils will meet privately with teachers alongside the networking event, and they will also have the opportunity to make short appointments with OAs on the evening if they would like to discuss in more depth, something that has piqued their interest.  

Following this, there will be more food and refreshments for you to enjoy.

Even if it is only for an hour or so, your assistance at this event is greatly appreciated by pupils and staff alike. To sing up, please complete this Google Form. 

Further details will follow. For more information, please contact caroline.taylor@abingdon.org.uk.
