Writing About Yourself

It’s the elephant in the room - the topic no one wants to talk about, but the one everyone has questions on –this important talk will look at everything you need to know about student finance, from tuition fees, to maintenance loans, to why your ‘student debt’ is nothing to be worried about!
Managing the Transition to HE
Taking that step into Higher Education is very exciting – but there are also things about it that make us feel nervous! This talk will look at some of those things, how we can help ourselves with the transition into Higher Education, and who we can go to when we do need that little extra support!
As we approach the Easter break, it’s time to get some positive energy – and Dan will supply that with extra to go around! Dan’s talk will help motivate you to keep on working.
