In December 2015, Year 9 students from Winstanley Community College attended a University Experience Day at the University of Leicester. The day, delivered by Cathy Sibley, Outreach Officer, provided students with a great opportunity to find out more about University. Please read further to see pictures and find out how you can get you students involved in these events.
On these type of days students work in small groups with Student Ambassadors to learn about budgeting, student finance, they then have the opportunity to go on a campus tour and see the facilities that universities offer for both learning and recreation. After lunch students find out more about different aspects of university life and work as a team to present their findings to the group.
Students are also able to ask the Undergraduate Student Ambassadors questions about university level study and life.
