Year 12 trip to University of Cambridge

Four Year 12 students from MBS Sixth Form met with students from seven other Westminster schools and travelled by coach to Cambridge.  Their visit was to Jesus College - one of the 31 colleges that make up the University of Cambridge.    The students started with an introduction to university life in general and then found out more about the University of Cambridge specifically - the different 'collegiate' structure, the courses they offer, the learning methods, living arrangements, societies, sports etc.   The students were then placed into groups for those who were most interested in STEM subjects (Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and those who favoured Humanities.  The STEM students were given a tour of the Jesus College campus by current undergraduate STEM students; they saw where students live, eat and socialise and also visited the impressive library.  Meanwhile the Humanities students attended a taster lecture given by a Cambridge academic.   After lunch, the groups swapped, and while the Humanities students went on their tour, the STEM students had a taster lecture given by a Psychology researcher.   The final session focused on preparing students for applying to university and particularly the Oxbridge applications process.  They heard top tips for writing their personal statement, preparing for admissions tests and interviews, and the extra things they can do to make their application stage out.  We thank Amy LeGrande, 6F Westminster Partnership Coordinator, who accompanied our pupils on this trip.
