Earlier this month, our Year 11 Stellar Programme students visited the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, to deepen their understanding of the higher education experience, to enrich their knowledge of broad range of subjects offered at degree level and to further their understanding of the expectations and rewards of a university education. Students were given a tour, participated in a higher education workshop and experienced taster sessions on Social Anthropology, Economics and History. Students loved their taster day at SOAS. The majority of our Stellar students could picture themselves studying at the university. On the bus journey home, many of them began to reassess the choice of subjects they wish to pursue at university after their engaging taster sessions experience.
