Visit report from the Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School
Forty Year 10 and 11 students from the Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School visited us late last year. Callum, Year 10, blogs about their trip.
Arriving at the College at around 10, we were greeted by Ed, the School Liaison Officer, with a warm smile. We then spent the day discovering a large amount of what university life would be like if, in a few years’ time, we decided to apply to a university.
After having a small talk about how Cambridge is not actually as exclusive as you may think, with the fees being the same as any other university, we took a small journey to the faculty of Law, where we visited a lecture hall and took a peek at the massive, three-floor library, in which students were hard at work studying for their exams. We then travelled back to the college, where there was a delectable lunch waiting for our arrival. While having lunch, we were given the opportunity to converse with some undergraduate students, who showed us around, and answered the many questions we had for them!
We were then given the opportunity to participate in a taster lecture on cell biology, where we learned a lot about how messages are passed around the body, and then finally were told about how the application process works for if, in the future, we decide to apply!
It was a great day, and I feel as if it has really helped me be more informed as to my options for higher education, as well as dispelling some myths I had about university!
