HISTORY INSIGHTS FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS

 

Fifty North Lincolnshire College students will visit the University of Lincoln this week to take part in a history open day at the Brayford Pool campus.

 

The students, who are all following A-level history and Access to Higher Education courses, will be at the university on Wednesday 28th November to find out more about higher education.

 

“This is the third year we have run this open day event,” commented Dr Andrew Walker, senior lecturer in History at the university. “We hope that, as in the previous two occasions, students will leave the university at the end of the day having gained some insight into life at university and some additional understanding of the subject of history.”

 

The University of Lincoln and North Lincolnshire College signed a memorandum of agreement at the end of October committing the two institutions to closer collaboration in the future.

 

“We have strong links with North Lincolnshire College,” said Dr Walker added. “A number of our current History undergraduates are former North Lincolnshire College students and we have arranged for two of them to be on hand to show our visitors around the university campus and to talk to them about life as History students.”

 

Jan Relf, History tutor at North Lincolnshire College and a co-organiser of the open day, is a Humanities graduate of the University of Lincoln.
