Year 12 girls also had the chance to find out about studying over the water and north of the border at a presentation by two famous Scottish and Northern Irish universities.
Katie Walkingshaw from Queen's University spelled out some of the major attractions - as well as financial advantages of studying for a degree in Belfast while Jonathan Holland talked on the popular destination of Edinburgh University.
Girls heard how financial assistance of up to £2,500 per year is available for all succesful applicants to Queen's. They also learned about the advantages of a 4 year degree at universities in Scotland where the final year costs them nothing in additional fees.
"It was really interesting to hear about the options available and I know that a lot of my friends are now thinking about following this up with an application," said Olivia Durnall, who is hoping to apply for a dentistry course.
The talks were part of this term's programme of sessions for year 12 girls to help them make university choices and support them through the UCAS process.
