University of Gloucestershire Aspirations Day

On Monday 24th June, a group of Year 9 students visited The University of Gloucestershire – Oxstalls Campus. The university hosted an event to help inspire and raise student aspirations and provided a carousel of workshops aimed at encouraging students to think about their future.

During the day, students received an introduction into what Higher Education (HE) means, and the many different ways to study at HE level. They also found out about the kinds of career paths they could follow if they studied in HE. The students had the opportunity to ‘Quiz their Ambassador’ and speak to current HE students about their student life and courses. They were taken on a tour of the campus and learnt about what studying at HE would be like.
