University of Birmingham Visit – Year 8

Pupils in Year 8 visited the University of Birmingham for a taster day, exploring the huge campus and meeting current students. After an introduction to what university has to offer and a few games, pupils had the chance to tour the grounds, visiting the impressive Great Hall in the Aston Webb building, the library, the sports fields and gym (with an impressive rock climbing wall) and the Student’s Union. 

Kai said “I enjoyed learning more about the university”. Cassie and Safaa said they enjoyed the question and answer session with the current university students, as they were able to “ask loads of questions”. Olivia and Eliza found the Pictionary Course Game really helpful to learn about the many different courses you can study at university.
