On Tuesday 8th August our young leaders were taken on a trip to Kingston University as part of our 2017 Summer University. During the trip our young leaders were engaged in a range of actives and talks which were facilitated by the time at Kingston University. They were split up into 5 groups with each group being supported by at least one Student Ambassador. They engaged in a speed dating formatted event which allowed them to find out more about each of the student ambassadors in relation to what they studied, any advice they had about university life as well as how they got to where they are now. Following this our young leaders were given a talk by Timothy Dhir with informed them about general tips and advice for university during which they also took a personality test which gave them feedback on their potential degree and career possibilities in relation to their personality traits. Finally, to round of the day the young leaders were given a tour around the Kingston University Campus, during which they were able to visit the accommodation, lecture rooms and library.
Overall our young leaders had a fantastic and informative day and we would like to thank Timothy Dhir and the team at Kingston University for having us and we look forward to working with Kingston next year.
