16/02/2016University Ambassadors visit Ansford Academy Trust

On Wednesday 27th January, student ambassadors from the Western Outreach Network made a visit to Ansford Academy in Somerset as part of a careers information day. Following a ‘What is HE?’ talk from WON Officer Debbie Longland, the three ambassadors from Bath, Bath Spa and UWE gave student life talks to the Year 9 students, aiming to address their queries and concerns surrounding university life.

The students were encouraged to familiarise themselves with the vocabulary commonly featuring within the context of HE through the completion of a University A to Z challenge, which also introduced them to concepts such as UCAS applications, fees and funding and terminology including Undergraduate and campus.

Overall, the Ansford students made the most of this opportunity, engaging with the ambassadors and the tasks they were set; providing positive feedback regarding the day as a whole.

The enthusiasm of the students was fantastic to receive and the Western Outreach Network staff and ambassadors look forward to future visits to other institutions.
