We are delighted to invite you to attend a UK Education event on Thursday 12th October at 6:30pm at the British International School of Washington DC.   Going to university in another country is an exciting life-changing adventure. If you are considering overseas study as your next step, do not miss this chance to meet 6 of the top UK universities and find out more about the opportunities available. All of the BEST of U Universities are ranked amongst the top 150 in the world and are based in six very different locations spread across England, so you can be sure of a world-leading education in a new and exciting city.       The UK is an increasingly popular study destination for US students due to its reputation for world-class education. In England, degree programmes are shorter in length as there are no general studies - you specialise from day one through to graduation in the subjects that interest you. Students coming to England to study can expect to achieve a Bachelor's degree in three years and a Master's degree in just one year, making the UK a far more affordable option than you might expect.    The 6 Russell Group Universities attending are as follows: • University of Bristol • Durham University • Newcastle University • The University of Southampton • The University of Warwick   • University of York   The evening’s activities will be structured as follows: From 6pm: Start of guest arrival 6:30 - 7:15pm: UCAS Personal Statement workshop 7.15 - 8:00pm: Why study in the UK: Discover how a UK Education will get you a step ahead 8.00 - 9.00pm: Mini college fair: An opportunity to chat with university representatives individually   Who Can Attend? Any student interested in UK Higher Education is invited. The event has been scheduled in the evening so that parents/guardians also have the opportunity to attend. Please note - you do not have to be planning to attend one of the 6 attending Universities to attend, the information will be relevant regardless of the UK universities you wish to apply to.   Registration The event is totally free and no ticket is required but completing the registration form will help us to establish accurate numbers of attendees.

The Poetry Brothel is a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello. The Poetry Brothel presents a rotating cast of both male and female poets as “whores,” each operating within a carefully crafted character, who impart their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private poetry readings on beds, chaise lounges and in private rooms. For a small fee, all of the “poetry whores” are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event. Of course, any true brothel needs a good cover; The Poetry Brothel’s is an immersive cabaret, offering a full bar, musicians, burlesque dancers, painters, actors, and fortune-tellers, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event.Doors open at 7:30pm; show starts at 8pm. Themed costumes and/or evening wear are encouraged but not required. This event is 21+.For specific event details, please visit www.thepoetrybrothel.com/events.html.
