Abbey College Cambridge is sponsoring this special webinar ‘An Overseas Parent’s Guide to UK Education’ to celebrate the launch of a new book of the same title co-authored by Dr Julian Davies, Principal of Abbey College Cambridge, and Dr Martin Stephen, former High Master of St Paul’s School.
Dr Davies and Dr Stephen will share tips and guidance from their book on the UK education system and how to select the right school. This webinar will be of great use to both the parents of international students, and to students themselves.
There will be an opportunity to put your questions to Dr Davies and Dr Stephen at the end of the session.
