On Friday, representatives from Staffordshire University visited Cadbury College to showcase what they can offer to A-Level students. A super fancy, branded double decker bus with an on-board cinema, bedroom and lounge with hot drinks, give-aways and a competition. Watching a short HE movie with popcorn, delving into a virtual reality experience with an oculus and seeing just where they could be living if they chose Staffordshire University next year, the students had a fabulous time!
The idea of the double decker bus came in response to many of the difficulities students have attending Open Days. The experience gives students an interactive opportunity to discover more about University life before embarking on that adventure, even if they are unable to travel to the scheduled Open Events.
All students on board the bus had a chance to gain advice and guidance from a member of the Education Liaison Team and Student Ambassadors, being able to ask all their questions about the University journey.
A fantastic experience for all our students, and one which will help them to begin their preparations for the next steps.
