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.

St Benedict's Careers University 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.

Medical Sciences

Aspiring medics already attend Med Soc, run by Head of Chemistry, Mrs O’Connor – but not everyone interested in studying medical sciences wants to be a medic! The range of careers in medic-related areas, such as in vaccine development and medical engineering, are likely to expand post-Covid.
