School Students visit University for Human Biology residential
School students from across the Midlands visited Loughborough University last week as part of a Human Biology residential.
The students stayed overnight on campus and took part in a wide range of activities. From hands on lab sessions to Human Biology lectures, the students were given a taster into University life.
They were also given the chance to meet and engage with current undergraduates who could offer insight to A Level students ahead of their University applications in September.
Subject Outreach Specialist (STEM) Dr Sian Williams, who organised the residential, said: "We were thrilled to welcome 30 year 12 students to experience a range of activities delivered by the Human Biology department. The aim is to give the students a taster of University life and provide them with information to help them in their choices of both course and University."
One student who attended the residential described the trip as a ‘great experience that offered a real insight into Human Biology as a degree choice and University life.'
