Last week 30 students from Year 10 had the opportunity to visit the University of Glos’ Aspirations Roadshow’
The students had the opportunity to quiz ambassadors who had recently graduated. They were amazed to discover that there are over 37,000 different course that you can study at uni and investigated what some of these might be from Arabic to Yacht Design. The students were also asked to brainstorm the variety of jobs that a music video might encompass from musician to rubbish collection on set and what type of qualifications might be involved.
They had a campus tour and were amazed at the facilities, especially the media centre with its state of the art editing/ radio/ journalist suites and extensive IT facilities. They were also surprised to discover that they might have to use a launderette but would have a bar on site!
The students all really enjoyed their first taste of University life and many have been inspired to consider the prospect of University as part of their future.
