Why Now is the Time to Start Thinking About University – Joe Seddon – Parent Session

Parent Session

The best universities deserve the brightest minds – but things don’t always end up that way. This presentation will introduce students and parents to the process of applying to highly selective universities. Myths will be busted and assumptions will be challenged. It will soon become apparent what really counts, and not always the things you might expect.

Session Presenter

Joe Seddon
