ST ALBANS STUDENTS TO RETURN TO LINCOLN

 

Lower sixth-formers from St Albans Catholic High School are to return next month to the University of Lincoln for a second year running to get a taste of university life.

 

Over 30 youngsters will spend two days at the university on the 4th and 5th July and will take part in many different activities organised and run by current Media Production and Spanish students.

 

A highlight of the induction will be when the students get a chance to use some of the university’s media equipment and have a go at writing and recording their own scripts.

 

There will be a Spanish workshop and a quiz testing how much the sixth-formers know about university life. There will also be a tour of the campus and an opportunity to look around the university accommodation.

 

“These inductions are great for giving teenagers an idea of what university is like because they get to mingle with the students themselves,” said Karen Raynes, the university’s marketing officer for Education Liaison. 

 

“The activities during the day are really useful and the overnight stay lets the students experience life on campus away from home.”
