A wide range of universities and higher education institutions will be exhibiting at this year’s convention. Why not join us on the day to find out more about the practicalities of going to university and to speak to representatives from the different universities? The event is open to the public - all are welcome.
Professor Michael Scott, Vice-Chancellor of Glyndŵr University, said: “Glyndŵr University is delighted to be involved in the North East Wales Higher Education Convention.
"Glyndŵr University is a vibrant, friendly place where each student’s learning and future is given personal attention.
"The University is growing and has expanded with new specialist sites in Flintshire and significant investment in brand new facilities on the Wrexham campus such as the new state-of-the-art Creative Industries Building and the innovative Centre for the Child, Family and Society.
"Courses are designed to provide employers with exactly what they’re looking for and many have been created with their direct input.
"Support, both in helping students plan their careers and their lives outside of the world of work, is always on hand via our careers team, as well as other expert advisers and counsellors.”
