On 2 November the AccessHE Year 8 Discover Arts and Social Sciences Expo took place in collaboration with our member HEI Royal Holloway.
The event was hugely informative for the 40 Year 8 Students involved, providing many of them with their first University campus visit and an insight into popular university subjects that they might not have yes encountered in the classroom.
Students were treated to gruesome Greek theology tales in the classics workshop whilst Trump dominated discussion in the politics seminar. In the subsequent workshops Royal Holloway Criminology lecturers delved into the complexities of the criminal psyche and languages and culture provided gave student an interactive introduction into the four most popular European languages.
The workshop content and extraordinary venue, without doubt, made for an impressive initial University experience. A huge thank you to Royal Holloway, their student ambassadors, the local authorities involved, and staff and students of the three schools in attendance.
