Thank you so much for your hard work and preparation for our visit yesterday, giving the children an inspirational experience and widening the life choices for those children who might not have otherwise considered attending university. The children were thrilled with their success in the simulation activity and gained an insight into the joy of university life, as well as a new-found respect for the serious business of study!
Sarah Cumming, teacher at Stoke Hill Junior School
Since 2013, we have hosted a number of local primary schools to the Business School. This provides the pupils with an exciting opportunity to visit the campus, interact with our current students, and gain an insight into university life.
The pupils take part in a Business simulation activity, as well as touring the campus to see the University facilities such as the Library, and meet current Business School undergraduates. A complimentary short refreshment break is also included. In the past, pupils have risen to the challenge of creating a cake company as part of the Business simulation activity, and each team has made a profit!
The visit is normally aimed at Year 6 pupils and runs from 09.45-12.15. However we are always happy to discuss bespoke visits so please do contact us if you have any questions.
Pupils will experience undergraduate level lectures and/or seminars, and an informal campus tour of the University facilities such as the Library and Students’ Guild, as well as free lunch at the La Touché café in the Business School.
Pupils will be allocated a Student Ambassador who they will shadow for the day. A typical student shadowing day runs between 10-3.30pm, (although we are flexible to fit timings around travel arrangements).
