As part of the University’s recent Open Days (18, 21 and 22 June), the Lifelong Learning Centre held sessions for people interested in exploring Foundation Years, our new interdisciplinary BA Contemporary and Professional Studies degree and studying part-time and/or returning to study as a mature student. As a rare treat the sun even came out for some of the time!
It was fantastic to see so many people on campus. From the young to the more mature and those interested in different ways of studying such as full-time, part-time or joint honours. From scientists to historians, engineers to nurses the Open Days gave people the opportunity to come on campus, speak to tutors and students, and get a feel for the University. What was really good to see were people really researching the paths and options available to them in order to best equip themselves with the tools to get the most out of Higher Education. For example, people starting an Access course at their local FE college who were looking into future options once they progressed to university.
People need to feel comfortable in order to succeed on a programme. Here at the Lifelong Learning Centre we want to ensure that people are getting the best opportunity to flourish in Higher Education. The “drop in” surgeries for advice and guidance were a huge success with MJ Morgan being much in demand. Now preparations for the September and October Open Days begin!
