Shrewsbury School

Studying in the US and Canada Conference

Monday 1 February 2021

On Thursday 11th February between 1.30pm and 3pm, Shrewsbury will host its biennial information conference on studying at US and Canadian universities. 

Though aimed at students and parents of the 5th and L6th Forms, all are welcome to attend this virtual and free event, where we will be joined by experts covering a wide range of topics.  With a growing number of Salopians both looking at and taking places at North American universities, it should prove very useful.  Speakers will include:

  • David Hawkins of The University Guys and a guru in all things international universities, on the US system, how to pick from the 4,500 colleges and the application process. 
  • Simon Lewis, CEO of UES Education, on the ACT and SAT tests, which have undergone considerable change this year.
  • Rob Thomas, MD of Sporting Elite USA, on the opportunities for scholarships, with sport a particular focus.
  • Tom Whittaker from the University of British Columbia on Canadian universities.
