The festival provided an impressive suite of resources tailored specifically for Taylor’s College students to ease the college-to-university transition. Here's an expanded look at what was offered, demonstrating the thoughtful preparation that Taylor's puts into supporting its students.

Key support mechanisms introduced during the festival included personalised guidance and seamless application processes, paving the way from Taylor's College to Taylor’s University. The support didn’t end there; global opportunities and career-focused preparation were also highlighted, equipping students for success not just in their studies, but in their future careers.

Expanding Global Horizons

Students asked for more information about university placements

Students were introduced to the breadth of Taylor’s university partnerships worldwide, opening doors to overseas transfer options and student exchange programmes. This segment of the festival was particularly vibrant, featuring testimonials and interactive sessions that helped students visualise themselves experiencing new cultures, perspectives, and enriching their studies in an international environment.

Career Pathways Exploration

Another highlight was the scientifically backed career interest assessment available at the festival, which helped students gain clearer insights into their strengths, skills, and interests. Coupled with guidance from experienced advisors, this assessment was a crucial step in helping students identify potential career paths that align with their passions and aspirations, setting a strong foundation for a fulfilling career.
