On Monday 27th January, 44 students from Darton Academy will be visiting Sheffield University to experience what university life is like. This will give students an idea of what is involved in the post-18 process and what to expect if they attend a place of Higher Education.
Sheffield University is a Russell group university which makes it one of the top universities in the country and it is indeed, rated as the 49th best in the world. On the visit the students will be learning about how to access university and the level of qualifications required, the application process, the variety of courses run and student finance. This experience should help to further promote and reinforce their aspirational thoughts for the future.
