Year 9 Higher Education Visit (Essex University)
In Year 9 students travel to the University of Essex for a Higher Education Insight Day. The students learn all about what it would be like if they chose a career path that included higher education. Lecturers give taster sessions on a variety of subjects before the students are taken on a campus tour by current University of Essex students. Finally, the students are entertained by a myth busting question and answer session where they get to ask anything about student life, including social life, finance and different study opportunities.
