About the Activity

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.

Teacher feedback from the event:

“It’s great to open the students eyes to opportunities available to them.”
