LIFE AFTER BDA: Y9 TASTER DAY AT LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS

On June 16th  2015, some selected year 9 students were invited on a trip to one of the top universities in the country - the London School of Economics.

We were asked to go to see what is possible to do with an economics degree, or any other degree. It was an amazing opportunity with a lot of us already studying economics at GCSE level.

On this trip we spoke to students who currently go to this university, and they were able to give us lots of advice and information about university life. They answered our questions and reassured us  about going to university. Also these students gave us a great tour around the university.

LSE is not the largest of universities, but the students who attended this trip got to learn a lot about life at university and what to expect. We  were also given information about living away from home and they discussed the good aspects and areas they would like improved, to help us make the right decision in the future about if we want to go to university. We had a fantastic time! Thank you Ms Reiss and Ms Ingr for taking us.
