“We had to consider our personal qualities and not just what we think of ourselves but why we believe we have these qualities. A task that seemed basic and straightforward (picking out three words to describe ourselves) suddenly became useful and served a deeper purpose that would help us with our personal statements. Over the course of the session, we also considered who inspires us and what we would like to be remembered by. The task forced me to consider what I want to achieve out of my career and made me think about the change I am determined to make in my future.” Rosalind Carvell.
“The experience provided me with an understanding of what university life could be like for me. Not only did I get a feel for what the facilities could be like at a university but what my typical day could be like. As I am used to being at school five days a week, I found it useful and encouraging, to find out in what ways university would be different from Sixth Form and how to cope with this new change.” Charlotte Milton.
