More success stories from graduation ceremonies
03 July 2009
Year 8 students from Bowring and Knowsley Hey Schools visited LJMU recently to experience university life.
The students took part in a range of activities which included a tour of the campus, a timetabling activity, a Q&A session with student advocates on university life and a look at some typical student accommodation. The day ended with the students giving a short presentation on their experiences during the visit.
Ursula Boote from Aimhigher Knowsley said: "The students readily engaged with the all of the activities and the positive feedback from the LJMU staff on the good behaviour and positive attitude of the students was great to hear."
Caroline Hilliard, Aimhigher Account Manager at LJMU, commented: "There was great interaction and engagement from the students which was clearly due to the early intervention which had taken place in school through the Aimhigher Programme."
