Silver jubilee education conference

Aspiring students and their parents can get a taste of what university could offer them this evening (Thursday).

The Island's 25th annual Higher Education Conference gets underway at Ballakermeen High School from 7pm.

It was started in 1986 to ensure Island students had enough information to choose the right institution and course.

More than 67 universities will be attending, as well as career advisors and gap-year organisations.

The conference continues tomorrow morning, with all the Island's post-16 students attending.
