North West Regional College (NWRC) will host a Virtual Higher Education week from February 22 – 28 at www.nwrc.ac.uk/heweek/.
The week of events will give local people of all ages the opportunity to find out more about the huge benefits of studying higher-level professional courses and qualifications in the college’s award-winning campuses in Strabane, Derry and Limavady.
Finneen Bradley, Careers Academy Manager & Deputy Head of Student Services at NWRC, said Virtual HE week will give people a real insight into the range of University level courses that are offered at the college.
“There are many reasons why studying Higher Education courses locally makes sense. There is a wide range of courses to choose from, and FE colleges are often the more affordable option, with much lower tuition fees. Students also have to option to live at home, reducing the substantial living and maintenance costs that come with moving away.”
“It is crucially important that individuals seek effective careers advice and guidance from Career Professionals to ensure they have explored all their options especially the Higher Education provision locally. Exploring all options enables individuals to make an informed decision.”
“If you, or someone you know, is completing A-Levels (or equivalent) this year, or is keen to undertake a high-level professional qualification, our Higher Education Week is a MUST for you. I’d encourage you to look at the schedule on our web page at www.nwrc.ac.uk/heweek/, and if anyone has any questions we’d be happy to answer them at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
