Pupils from across Aberdeen city and shire will have the unique opportunity to experience what life is like as a student today (Friday 14 November), thanks to the launch of a new University of Aberdeen initiative.
From lectures and tutorials to study skills and social events, 30 S6 pupils will gain an exclusive insight into a typical day for a scholar at the institution, on a visit to the University's King's College Campus.
The Student Life Experience Day has been devised by the University's Aim 4 Uni scheme which uses a range of projects to support school and college pupils through the transition from school to university.
The day will provide a realistic picture of what life at the University has to offer as Rachel Sandison, Head of Student Recruitment and Admissions explains: "For many pupils studying at school and college making the move into higher education can be a daunting prospect as they know very little about what life is like on an actual university campus.
"An entirely new initiative to be launched by the University, the Student Life Experience Day aims to provide pupils with a positive opportunity to find out first hand exactly what happens in the daily timetable of a University of Aberdeen student.
"Those attending the day will have the opportunity to experience a lecture taken by one of the University's leading academic staff - Professor Peter Davidson, Chair in Renaissance Studies in History of Art. A Study Skills Tutorial session will provide the pupils with crucial tips on studying skills and techniques, and members of the University's Students' Association will also be on hand to highlight the range of social, charitable and sporting activities which are available to students.
"The event has proven to be extremely popular and will now become a regular feature in the University calendar, providing the opportunity for all prospective students to get a taste of university life."
