Harrow Way students explore Higher Education at The University of Winchester

May 11th, 2016

Harrow Way Community School Year 10 students have been given a taste of Higher Education following a trip to The University of Winchester. The day of lecturers, tours and meeting undergraduates was designed to inspire the students to start considering their future and the role university could play in helping them achieve their ambitions.

Head of Year 10 Lawrie Carter said: “Although university is a number of years away for these students it is important that they start to think about their future now. They all thoroughly enjoyed the visit and can now visualise what ‘being at university’ looks and feels like. We want students to aim high and achieve the best they can and the planning for that starts here, at Harrow Way. They have seen what could await them if they work hard and continue with their studies.”

While at the University students took part in a number of sample lecturers including Law, Psychology, Dance and Business Studies. Hosted by undergraduates they were given a tour of the whole university including student accommodation, the library, lecturer theatres, gym, canteen, coffee bars and the Student Union bar. Their enthusiastic hosts answered all their queries and questions about courses, finances and the difference between school and university.

Harrow Way undertakes a series of activities throughout the year to encourage and engage students with their future. This also includes opportunities for work experience, careers interviews, trips, assemblies and outside speaker programme.
