News: A Level students get a taste of university life

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.

More than 100 final year A Level students benefitted from a visit to Nottingham Trent University (NTU) last month, giving them a real insight into university-level study and all it entails.

The Student Finance and Thriving at University’ presentation was led by Venita Chadda from the NTU Post-16 Outreach team, who was accompanied by a current NTU student, who shared her personal experiences and pointers with students.

Via their mobile phones, students got the opportunity to pose questions directly to the experts, which were then displayed on the big screen of the auditorium. They covered a range of topics — from clearing and accommodation to extra-curricular activities and managing finances.

We have a great working relationship with our neighbours, NTU, who give our students lots of crucial information and advice. 

This event was really positive and engaging for our students. They could ask genuine questions and received a real human response. Many of our students will be progressing to university later this year, so this opportunity was invaluable. 

 — Robin Atherlay — High Pavement Sixth Form Manager
