Wilmington Academy students visit the University of Kent

Year 12 Students visited the University of Kent to experience university life. They attended taster sessions on Robotics, Architecture and Medical Ethics, as well as a talk on Student Finance.

Sessions were set up like first year seminar classes, so students could participate in the activities and engage in asking questions of the lecturers.  

Student Courtney Richards enjoyed the variety of sessions: "Today at the university I was able to look in the different subjects and in architecture we were able to design a home and in engineering we were able to see how a robot was programmed.

"I found the day very helpful as it not only gave me a taster on different subjects, proving them to be entertaining, when I once thought they involved just sitting down and doing work. It also let me have a view around campus which seemed to be very organised and many of the people there seemed happy. This proved to me, that it would be a good opportunity to go there." 

Student, Ben Stotesbury commented: "I found the university trip today useful because Kent University was where I was most interested in applying to. The trip has given me more insight into my decision.

"The session I enjoyed the most was the medical ethics session because it was thought provoking and made me consider other points of view."
