University Life for Alex and Andreas
Students Andreas Milan and Alexandra Lawless experienced University life this term.
The two Year 9 students were put forward for the Dux award scheme, which gives exceptional Year 9 students access to university life at a Russell group university.
They spent the day at Nottingham University, chatting with current students, meeting their contemporaries from across the country and had a tour of the university campus.
They also took part in a university challenge style quiz and were part of the winning team.
Andreas said: “We went to Cambridge University last term and I preferred it there as it seemed less formal.”
Alexandra said: “I am glad we have been able to see some universities as I do want to go to university.”
The Dux awards were founded by the government this year and are aimed at giving top performing secondary school students an insight into higher education.
