- Teachers and university advisers – what information do you need to provide to US colleges in support of your students?
Want to learn more about Harvard and American-style higher education? Then invite us to give a presentation at your school, either live or remotely.
at Linlithgow Academy, near Edinburgh, in September 2021
Each year the Harvard Outreach Team visits 25-30 schools across the UK to talk about Harvard and the American university system. During the coronavirus pandemic we re-structured the presentation to make it suitable to be given remotely using one of the meeting platforms commonly used in schools, such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Google Meet. But from January 2022 we will return to offering in-person visits (where conditions allow) as well as remote presentations. In either case, the presentation takes 40 minutes plus time for questions – a total length of 45-60 minutes.
The session is entitled: Study in the USA – Is it for you? and is aimed at students who are thinking of applying to Harvard and other US colleges either next year or the year after, but would like further information before making up their minds. Parents, teachers and university advisers are also welcome to attend. Target institutions are state-funded schools and colleges that regularly send their students to Russell Group universities in the UK, but do not have a history of applying to American colleges.
To request a visit, simply send an email to outreach co-ordinator Stuart Gordon firstname.lastname@example.org giving the name and location of your school and roughly when you would like the presentation to take place. We welcome requests from both teachers and students, but if you are a student, please seek the approval of the appropriate member of staff (the Head of Sixth Form or the teacher in charge of university applications) before you write to us.
We look forward to meeting you, either live or remotely, in the New Year!
