Last Monday, 77 Year 9 students spent the day at Sunderland University taking part in a Destination Uni Day at the City Campus. This is the final part of our Year 9 programme with Sunderland University this year which has seen every student take part in three workshops in school led by the university, visiting our Careers Fair held at the university, and a large number spending the day on-campus. The students walked to the university and were welcomed by University Ambassadors and staff on arrival at the Murray Library. After a welcome and an ice-breaker task, the students were divided into 3 groups to take part in 3 different activities on a carousel. One activity looked at ‘why university? including fake degrees and societies. Another activity was a practical session to learn more about Occupational Therapy – a course offered at the university. Students had the opportunity to explore some of the equipment that is used when delivering this course. The third session included a tour of the university to see the amazing facilities available followed by a student panel where students could ask the University Ambassadors questions about student life. For many students, this might have been the first time visiting a university and it gave students an insight on what it means to go to university in the future.
