Y7 Pupils Experience a Day in the Life of University Students
26 April 2018
Forty-five of our Year 7 students paid a visit to The University of Liverpool last week, experiencing a day in the life of a model student. The schedule for the open day involved a walking tour of the University’s city campus guided by current undergraduate students, a show-stopping experiment with liquid nitrogen in our students’ first ever lecture, an introduction to the many clubs & societies they could join plus some early advice on how to budget for an entire year!
The purpose of the visit was to raise awareness of the opportunities that our young students have open to them as they progress through secondary school, perhaps sparking an interest in University life as just one of those many options that they will come to consider in the future. This is part of our ongoing commitment to careers development at The Birkenhead Park School and many more events will take place throughout their school journey. For now, our visit to The University was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and proved to be an inspiring day out for all that took part.
Let’s see what some of our pupils had to say:
