PUPILS TO GET A TASTE OF UNIVERSITY LIFE

 

School pupils from Hucknall and will be given an idea of what student life is all about when they visit the Lincoln campus of the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside next week.

 

Sixty year 12 pupils from Holgate School will take part in an ACE Day (Aiming for a College Education) on Tuesday 18th January which is designed to give school pupils a taste of how higher education works.

 

The taster day will give pupils the chance to find out more about Media Production and Psychology and will feature interactive ‘lessons’ showing the pupils that learning can be fun.

 

“The day will be spent showing the youngsters how enjoyable life is at university,” commented the schools liaison manager Ann Spencer. “The pupils will be using the latest technology to sample mock lessons, and we hope that it will open their eyes a little bit to the opportunities higher education can offer.”

 

The programme of ACE Days at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside is part-funded by the North Nottinghamshire TEC.
