Moreover, a panel of current students will also be sharing their university lives and giving you insider information on what it is like to study Humanities and Education (TESOL) in the UK!
After the presentations, participating universities will provide further information about their institutions, course offerings, scholarships opportunities, and other topics in individual Zoom breakout rooms.
