Brilliant Bournemouth University Open Day for Year 9 Students

Bournemouth University

On Wednesday 13th July 2016, 39 Year 9 students visited Bournemouth University for the day as part of the school’s Careers and Most Able programmes. Accompanied by staff, students attended a bespoke Open Day which included a talk from Student Ambassadors, personalised tours and activities such as ‘Design Your Own Student’ and a ‘Budgeting Challenge’ to give the students an insight into life as a university undergraduate.

Housed in the ultra-modern Fusion Building on the Talbot Campus, the Year 9s learnt all about the varied academic and vocational courses available at Bournemouth from current students who spoke with great clarity and enthusiasm. As a team, the university students worked professionally to present a highly interactive programme and we were really impressed by the outreach provision at the University, not to mention the incredible architecture and facilities available to those who choose to study there.

Thank you to the staff and students involved for a highly informative, fun day out!
