12 Year 8’s visited Surrey University and got to experience what University life could be like.

There was a tour of the University campus and students learnt about what was on offer, experiencing taster sessions in Law, Psychology, Engineering, Physics, Careers, Drama, Nutrition, Maths and Media. The extra-curricular activities, such as the clubs and societies included Martial Arts, Dodgeball, Nursing and British Sign Language. Each day was also filled with games during the breaks and everyone got given lunch on campus too.

Throughout the week they filled in memory books to reflect on their time at the University and what they had learnt and experienced. There was a motivational speaker who also talked about memory techniques which the students really enjoyed.

On the final day students took part in the Mini Graduation Ceremony where they wore graduation gowns, had their names read out to collect their very own graduation ‘scroll’. Many of our students were given special awards by the group leaders for such things as being ‘extra enthusiastic’.

It was a great week and the students had a fabulous time learning about their future options and opportunities.
