As part of our partnership with the widening participation team at Nottingham Trent University on Thursday 27 and Friday 28 June, 60 Year 8 and Year 9 students visited Nottingham Trent University for a campus tour. They learnt about student life and the courses available.

Spending the day guided by student ambassadors. They had a tour to talk with university students and staff about the university answering questions like: what opportunities are available at NTU and how can they help students? And what are the benefits of university? They then presented their ideas to the whole group.

The students planned where they needed to go around the campus to find the answers to the questions and then were taken around by the student ambassadors.

In the afternoon they worked as a team to plan a presentation to the rest of the group. The students did this exceptionally well. The students were a credit to the school asking brilliant questions, behaving impeccably and showing high degrees of confidence in approaching people to interview them.

If any parents would like any further information about university as an option for their child please contact Mrs McKenna at the school, who will be happy to arrange a parent session with representatives from the university.
