Universities are looking for students that have gone above and beyond to demonstrate their subject passion. At the conference, students from Seren hubs across Wales will take part in Academic Masterclasses that will provide a new perspective on broader areas of study beyond the A-level and Welsh Bacc curriculum. You’ll also have the opportunity to speak directly with leading universities from the UK and overseas to answer any questions you may have about student life, finance, scholarships, bursaries and getting career-ready while at university.



  • Have you thought about how will you undertake your professional learning and demonstrate your strong leadership skills within your profession this year?
  • How will you equip yourself with all the information required to support your high fliers and their progression to university?
  • How will you navigate university admissions tests and plan stretch and challenge support to help your students reach their full potential?

The conference will also will enable you to meet other professionals who are also going over and above to support their students and to share best practice.
