Year 8s Gain an Insight into Higher Education

Published on 19 April 2017

Just before the Easter holiday, a group of high flying Manchester Academy students got an opportunity to investigate the opportunities that are on offer at Manchester University.

The Year 8 learners took part in a university “familiarisation” day organised by the university’s Gateways programme team. 

During the day the pupils got to learn about the wide range of different subjects and courses available at university, experience hands-on and interactive workshops developed by post-graduate researchers and develop their communication and team working skills as they participated in group work with pupils from different schools. 

The day was both highly informative and enjoyable. The Manchester Academy students ended the day having thought more about their future options and in a better position to make decisions about what lies ahead.
