The Student Success Academy aims to help students achieve their goals for their time at university and supercharge their career prospects by providing a holistic package of support which includes Academic Success Coaching, Micro-Internships, the Future Black Talent Programme and the expansion of Personal Best. It was brought about through the generous donation of alumnus Chris Gill, and will continue to grow and offer further support through the support of our Loughborough alumni family.
The launch was well-attended by students and staff from across the University and was opened by the Vice-Chancellor and Professor Rachel Thomson, Pro-Vice Chancellor (Education and Student Experience).
Charlie Wheeldon, Head of Student Development and Graduate Outcomes said: “The Student Success Academy is part of a wider movement across the University to break down the barriers that can face students in Higher Education, so it was brilliant to see hundreds of students engaging with the different opportunities that are available to access throughout their university journey.”
A number of exam revision and top tips sessions were held over the two days that provided expert advice for those who may not have sat in-person exams before, as well as training on proven techniques for effective revision. A recording of these sessions is available to watch online.
For students who attended the event, you are in with a chance of winning Bom Bom vouchers, if you provide feedback by 18 May.
