St Illtyds’s Campus Visit Day

Tuesday 16 July 2019

We made it into St Illtyd’s Newsletter! Glad you enjoyed the visit and hope to see you again soon!

Just before the Easter break, a group of Year 9 pupils visited Cardiff University on a First Campus KS3 Campus Visit Day. The Campus Visit Days are designed to raise educational aspirations by giving pupils in KS3 an opportunity to visit a University Campus and take part in interactive information, advice and guidance sessions covering topics such as University Finance Myth Buster, Your Future Career, Why go to University and to pick the brains of current Undergraduates. In addition to these sessions, pupils were given a guided tour of Cardiff University. All pupils thoroughly enjoyed their visit. Our thanks go to Vicki Woods, Ffiona Mills and all of the student ambassadors for looking after us so well. We are also extremely grateful to First Campus at Cardiff University for funding a coach, enabling us to take more pupils.
