More Info:

Led by Karen Cullen of Queen Margaret University and Jill Davie of West Lothian College, this workshop will focus on studying at college in Scotland, including applying for HNC and HND qualifications and how you can use these to progress to university. There will also be information on the support you can expect to receive at college.

A current HN student and a current university student who used the college route to get into university will be on hand to share their own experiences with you - invaluable if you think this route is for you.
