University Summer School Success

Several of our students attended the University of Liverpool's first 'Health and Life Sciences' summer school from Tuesday 2 to Thursday 4 July.

The event aimed to raise awareness and aspirations towards higher education, highlighting the career paths and opportunities open to anyone who opts for a clinical based course at university.

The programme was designed to give young people a realistic taste of both the academic and social side of university life and encourage learners to consider the links between their own school curriculum, study at university and their future career choices.

Over the three days university staff organised hands on tasters in Medicine, Dentistry, Health, Sciences, Psychology, Veterinary Science and Life Sciences. The visiting students were then able to choose which sessions they wanted to attend, based on their future careers plans, tailoring the programme to their interests.

In the evenings the students stayed at halls of residence to give them a real taste of what it is like to be a student living independently away from home. There was also a full social programme in the evenings to help the students feel relaxed and to make new friends.

Throughout the event the young people had been led by teams of undergraduate workers, who were available to answer questions about university from their own perspective, drawing on their own recent experiences.
