On Wednesday 5th May 2010 Kristy Guneratne, Schools’ Liaison Officer from King’s College, Cambridge, spoke to a group of Yr 11 and 12 students about the universities of Cambridge and Oxford. She helped explain all the exciting opportunities these universities could offer students, as well as outline the requirements for admission and what students need to be thinking about currently with regard to choices post 16 and activities to support their applications.
Here are some comments about what the students thought of this experience;
“The talk with the Admissions Officer was really helpful. She managed to explain a lot of the questions about applying to university which I needed to know. She also helped me to finalise my decisions on which AS levels/A levels I am going to take next year. It was also very helpful as a lot of her information could be used with other universities and not just Cambridge.”
“I thought it was an excellent help with information about Cambridge and other universities in general. It gave me an insight into what university is going to be like and inspired me to do well so that I have the chance to apply to a high end university.”
“The Cambridge talk last week was really helpful. I’d been thinking vaguely about Uni but I hadn’t really looked into it much. I thought the presentation was extremely useful, it had loads of information about the structure of the university, how everything worked, accommodation and cost. It was very interesting and I’m definitely going to apply next year. Wish me luck!”
“I really enjoyed it. It helped me decide what I want to do at A level and really opened my eyes to the hardwork I’m going to have to do. The university looked amazing and I didn’t realise that it’s not as expensive as you think. I will definitely be applying.”
A big congratulations to all students involved in this talk!
