Aspiring to University
Run for our Gifted and Talented students, the event involved an introduction to higher education as well as an insight into student life.
The eight students who attended spent part of the day learning revision and memory techniques and then they worked in groups to find out as much as they could about one aspect of student life at the university.
They did this by asking questions of the ambassadors they were working with. Each group then had to give a presentation on their findings.
There are two more events which the students will attend: the first is on 24th Feb where they will choose which workshops they will take part in and on 1st April they will attend a three day residential at the university where they will experience life as a student.
