International college counsellors webinar programme

A series of webinars, for college counsellors and advisors, to share insight into the lives of international students at the University during a pandemic.

Counsellor and Advisor Webinar Series

Spring 2021

Back by popular demand, the University of Bath is very pleased to introduce three webinars during this coming semester, aimed at university counsellors and advisors. These webinars will give you greater insight into the life of an international student at the University of Bath during a pandemic. 

Hosted by Ciara Newby (Acting Head of Undergraduate Recruitment), each interactive webinar will provide the opportunity for you to learn more from some of our professional staff experts at Bath, ask any questions, and hear first-hand from our international undergraduate students about their experiences. 

We are happy to arrange a bespoke session for you or your students so please do not hesitate to email if you would like to arrange something.
