Business Students Visit Edge Hill University
Year 12 business students have taken advantage of a fantastic opportunity to take a day out of their busy sixth-form schedule to spend time at Edge Hill in Ormskirk to investigate what it’s like to be at university.
Edge Hill university, based in Ormskirk (it’s by Liverpool!), offered students the opportunity to experience many aspects of university life; taster lectures in business management, accountancy and marketing as well as a tour of the campus. There was even time for a spot of lunch just before a trip to see the fantastic sport and fitness facilities. They even have a hockey pitch!
What were students involved with?
- – Course overview and business department introduction
- – Campus tour with current undergraduate students
- – Subject taster workshops for business management, marketing and accountancy.
- – Participation in Q&A session where students were able to raise any questions about the course or about university life.
Taster lectures allowed our sixth-formers the chance to see what university lectures can be like and what learning at the next level can be like too. The business school in the heart of the university campus offers students an environment in which they can develop and grow alongside the ever changing business environment, enriched by the partnerships they have with some leading universities, employers and professional bodies.
The day seemed to go down well. Students enjoyed the opportunity to experience business related subjects at the next level. Others really enjoyed their first experience of a university and all of the delights it offered. Some, who had previously decided university wasn’t for them changed their minds!
What are you doing next year?
‘What are you planning to do next?’ – A question we hear all too often! Do you even know what you want to do next? This can be a daunting time in your life. For some, this can be one of the most challenging decisions you’ve faced so far. For others, it’s as if there’s no question at all…of course you’re going! It’s important to remember that this is meant to be a difficult decision. You’re deciding on loads of things…where you will go, what you will study and essentially where you want to end up with your career. Don’t be put off by the challenge of having to put some serious effort into researching universities, courses and local areas to help make your decision.
