ON COURSE TO SUCCEED
NEED some help deciding which way to go now? Then the National Sixth Form Conference at Harper Adams University College on July 10-11 could be well worth a visit.
The event, sponsored by farmers weekly and the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs, will bring together major colleges and universities involved in the countryside.
"Deciding which course to study is an important choice for many sixth-formers – and for those interested in agriculture and rural issues, the number of options has never been greater," says organiser Richard Jopling.
"In the 12 years the conference has been running, the number of subjects on offer has grown enormously and the range of subjects on offer can initially be bewildering."
On the first day, students will get independent career advice and learn about specific courses. After an overnight stay in college, they will be given an insight into student life and a feel for studying land-based industries through activities on the campus and farm.
* The course fee is £15 including meals and accommodation. To book, telephone Richard Jopling (01952 820280) by July 4.
