This Wednesday, a lucky group of Year 9 students went for a campus tour of Sussex University as part of the Making Choices and IntoUniversity programmes. These programmes aim to promote aspiration in students whose families do not have a history of Higher Education by introducing them to the university style of learning and encouraging them to feel comfortable in a university environment.
On this visit, pupils experienced subject taster sessions and were shown around the seminar rooms, library, gym and Students’ Union bar. Year 9 will be returning to Sussex University later on in the year for some academic days.
If you would like to get involved with either of the programmes mentioned above, please visit this page for more information.
