Here at Alice Smith, we strive to give our students as many opportunities as possible and we’re lucky to be able to host visitors from top universities across the world.
Our programme of lunchtime lectures aims to give students an insight into different subjects and learning at degree level. Last week, Teesside University presented to students who are interested in Computer Science, and we also had two lecturers in English and Economics from the University of Warwick give sessions on post-colonial literature, its effect on language and the environment, and issues such as ‘Why are some Countries richer than others?’ respectively.
Last week we also hosted visits from Yale-NUS (Singapore), University College London (UCL), St George’s Medical School (London) and Les Roches (Switzerland). These visits allow students to talk informally with admissions tutors and gain tips on applications, as well as develop their confidence in speaking. Earlier on this week, many of our arts students took the opportunity to meet with a representative from the New School, which consists of a world-renowned design school, Parsons, New York, a liberal arts college, a performing arts college, and many graduate schools. We were also able to show her some of the fantastic work produced by students in our Art Department.
This week our Year 12 have been introduced to ‘how to write a personal statement’ by the University of Manchester during their Higher Education lesson, and Year 13 students were also able to meet and talk with the admissions team to find out more about studying in Manchester.
Next Wednesday we are holding a US/Canadian University Mini-Fair during lunchtime, which parents and students from all years are welcome to attend. On Thursday, we are also holding Oxbridge workshops for parents and students in Years 10-13. You should have received an email regarding this; if you want to sign up please complete this form.
As always, please contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions or queries.
