Inspiration workshops for Year 9

Barbara Freeman / Categories: News

Ambassadors from Bath Spa University ambassadors held a series of workshops with groups of Year 9 students in the LRC this week. The aim of the event was to raise students' awareness about attending university and to inspire them to aim higher by considering higher education as an option. 

Myths about university were discussed through interactive games and students even had the chance to interview Bath Spa ambassadors, asking questions about university life.    

With over 150 universities and 37,000 different courses, university is accessible to everyone. Students can find out more about Bath Spa University on their website: and more general information about higher education on the UCAS website:

Students said:

  • I learnt a lot about university and Charlotte was very helpful.
  • I was not sure about university but now I think I would enjoy it.
  • I found the visit interesting and I learned a bit however I’ve always wanted to attend university.
  • I have a good idea of what courses are available and I am now seriously considering University.
  • I found out about the costs and financial help available.
  • It helped me to understand how university can help you to achieve your education.

"We had such a lovely day. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. The ambassadors and Tom all said what a lovely school Nova Hreod is and that all the pupils we saw were lovely." Claire Edwards – Widening Participation Outreach Officer, Bath Spa University
