MP to host universities event tonight

Stourbridge News: Margot James MP Margot James MP

STOURBRIDGE MP Margot James is hosting a Universities Outreach event tonight (Thursday April 10) in Stourbridge as part of her Raising Aspirations programme for pupils at Black Country schools.

Taking place from 5pm to 7.30pm at Amblecote’s Glasshouse College, the event is the second annual Universities Outreach evening organised by the MP to give students chance to meet representatives from a number of Russell Group universities.

The last one attracted more than 300 local students and parents.

Margot said: “It is great to be bringing some of the UK’s top universities to Stourbridge to meet with local parents and students. This is the next event in the Aspirations Programme I have been running with the nearby schools and colleges, and I do hope that many pupils will take this chance to network with the high calibre of universities attending. It’s a great chance to find out whether specific courses or universities could be right, and parents will be able to get the information they need as well.”

The evening will include a series of university-run workshops on topics including student finance, how to choose a course, the application process and student life.

For more information or to attend the event contact the MP’s constituency office on 01384 370574.

There will be plenty of victims for our Tory MP to force into workfare at this "event" I imagine. She will be wringing her hands in delight at the free labour available.

I say well done Margot. This is exactly what children and young people round here need to see how they can get to the best universities. University is expensive nowadays but the best university courses cost the same as the second rate ones. So it's best to aim high and this kind of thing helps young people to see that they can get onto the best courses if they put the study time in.
