The whole of our new Lower Sixth went to our partner university at Sussex to enjoy a University Taster Day.
Once there we met Student Ambassadors who showed us around the campus and told us the subjects and types of courses (such as sandwich, foundation, joint honours) they were studying. During a lecture, we were given advice on websites to use for selecting courses and institutions, such as ‘Which! University’ and we did a ranking activity that shortlisted our priorities for choosing higher education. On the journey back many students commented that is was a really invaluable trip and it had helped them to put into perspective the upcoming two years of study and what to aspire to.
