The whole of the Lower Sixth got their first taste of university life on a visit to Cardiff University. On arrival, they received a warm welcome from the student ambassadors who led them to what they called a ‘standard’ university lecture hall, where they received two talks – the first discussing university workloads and what is expected from them during their three to five years as an undergraduate.
Following this, they were given a tour of the campus by some very helpful current students before receiving the second talk of the day. This time, the Lower Sixth heard about student life, including budgeting, part-time jobs and counselling. To round off this interesting and enlightening day, they were given the opportunity to ask university students – varying from an undergraduate in Business to a PhD student in Architecture – any questions they had. Our Lower Sixth are now feeling all the more confident for the next step after they complete their A Levels.
