The S5 Hub is a blog specifically for LEAPS S5 students. We will be using this space on our website to give S5 students tips and advice on how to best get started in their planning for higher education. It will be updated regularly over the coming months with advice, guidance and opportunities S5 students can tap into. Use us!
Further to the S5 Conference held in March, you can now view a short film which provides a snapshot of the event and captures the experiences of the students who attended.
Students attending High Flyers last week enjoyed participating in a range of workshops held at the four universities in Edinburgh.
There was also an opportunity to take part in social activities and students stayed in university accommodation during the week. You can find out more about High Flyers and watch a short film about the students' experiences by visiting the High Flyers page.
Thank you to the 264 students who came along to our S6 Conference on Friday 12th December. The feedback has been really positive and we're glad that it was seen to be a useful event. We have had some requests for copies of the presentation slides that were used on the day. Not all of the slides lend themselves to being viewed out of context, nevertheless we have included below the materials used in the Student Funding, College Application, Next Steps in the UCAS Process, Personal Statement, University Study and Talking about your art and design work sessions.
Student volunteers from local universities play a central role in our workshops in school and on university campus.
We have extended our range of support for LEAPS students in S6 (and those in S5 who are looking to apply to university this year) for the 2014-2015 session. A short summary of each activity can be found in this leaflet. Meanwhile, here is a list of what will be taking place this year:
