LJMU welcome Year 12 students in Sixth Form Induction Week
17 September 2012
The Outreach team welcomed close to 1,000 Year 12 students onto campus last week, to showcase LJMU's facilities and to prepare them for the journey into Higher Education as part of their Sixth Form Induction.
Students came from across Merseyside for the bespoke visits, hosted by the Outreach Team and delivered in conjunction with our Student Advocates who devised their own subject taster sessions.
Schools included Pensby High, Hilbre High, Wallasey School, St Michaels High, Oldershaw Academy, Archbishop Blanch, Maricourt Catholic High and All Saints Centre for Learning.
They visited the University to attend subject taster sessions, Introduction to HE talks, campus tours, study skills workshops and team building exercises.
The objectives of the visits were to raise the student's aspirations and encourage academic attainment, and provide transparency of the process of applying to University.
A student from Archbishop Blanch said, "I found today really useful and interesting. It made me feel happy and secure that the choices I have made for A Level will help me get into University. I feel driven to work hard and achieve my ambitions."
A student who attended a Psychology taster session (led by Student Advocate Marissa Walker) said, "The session was really interesting, and I was able to relate really well to Marissa. I learnt a lot about Psychology and I really want to come and study it at LJMU!"
Throughout the 2011/12 recruitment cycle, the Outreach team engaged with 81,618 prospective LJMU students, either on campus or in schools and colleges.
