This is a workshop on university subject choice & future pathways. Although the main goal is to prepare students on how to choose a subject suited to their strengths and interests while also enhancing their candidacy for entry into a selective university in the UK, including an intro to UCAS, this training also teaches applicants the practical intelligence, skills and attitudes needed to navigate and succeed in modern society.

The teaching is designed to trigger students’ awareness of the “real world” and what makes people successful.
