Old Priorians mentor L6 University Applicants
St Benedict's Year 12 students currently working on their UCAS applications are benefiting from the advice and insight of alumni currently at university, in a series of mentoring sessions.
This term, the Careers Department is running a series of mentoring sessions for the Lower 6th, who are starting to make their university applications. In addition to regular one-to-one discussions about courses, careers, personal statements and choice of university, invaluable insight and advice is also being given by Old Priorians (alumni) currently studying at university: via Microsoft Teams, OPs talk directly to Lower 6th students about their chosen courses and institutions, and answer questions.
