IBSCA Higher Education Advisors’ Conference (University of Bath)

6th June 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

We are delighted to invite you to the IBSCA Higher Education Advisors’ Conference which will take place at the University of Bath on Wednesday 6th June.

We are delighted to have the opportunity to host our HE conference at the University of Bath this year, as the University has a long association with the IB which is most appropriate in this, the IB’s 50th anniversary year. We are collaborating with the university to develop an exciting programme of seminars to support HE counsellors, DP and CP Co-ordinators and other teachers advising students on their university options.

The conference will update delegates on a number of developments in IB admissions by UK HEI, including the response of UK HEI to the revised Mathematics courses. Our colleagues from Bath will contribute by delivering sessions on specific subjects and we will take advantage of the opportunity presented by a major recruiter of IB students to hear from some of the students themselves.

As with previous IBSCA HE conferences we will explore the options for students who wish to study overseas, either by attending overseas HEI, or by incorporating a year abroad into their UK degree programme. As we know apprenticeships are high on the government agenda and we will have a contribution on degree apprenticeships.

One of the highlights of last year’s conference was the networking dinner on the preceding evening. We intend to organise a similar event this year so that delegates, staff from nearby IB schools and staff from the university can meet together in an informal manner.

The conference will be free of charge, please see how to register below.

A final agenda for this conference can be found here.
