34 business studies and law students from The Island VI Form visited Southampton Solent University last week. They had a taster day to experience what life is like studying these subjects at a higher level.
Students met with staff and current university students to discuss what life is like as a student at Southampton Solent. They attended a range of speeches and presentations to find out about the courses offered and the additional experiences they can expect from university life. They also took part in a mock courtroom with various discussions and challenges set to test their problem solving skills. This was delivered by members of IBM.
Overall, the students found the taster day extremely beneficial as they gained a real insight into what they can expect from life at University, particularly within these two subject areas.
Thank you to Mr Mather and Mrs Drage for organising this opportunity.
