Year 13 Explore Coventry University
Supporting our sixth form students with their UCAS decision process
A small group of Year 13 students from The Hinckley Sixth Form were offered the opportunity to visit Coventry University and CU Coventry last week as part of their UCAS decision process. This kind of event is useful in helping students decide on whether to apply to university or finalise their choices. Coventry University and CU Coventry are 2 of our local providers who offer us a huge amount of support. We are part of their Phoenix Partnership which is designed to increase engagement between schools and universities.
As part of the day students participated in lectures on Business and futures planning as well as Hospitality, leisure and tourism. They then went on a campus tour seeing the amazing facilities such as their Health and Lifesciences block which includes hospital wards and an ambulance for training as well as court rooms and prison cells! At the Hinckley Sixth Form we give impartial advice to all students regarding careers and progression, however, it is important for them to realise the amazing universities and
providers we have on our doorstep.
We are now looking forward to April when all of Year 12 will visit Coventry University as part of the partnership for a full experience day.
