Prestigious Scholars Programme
Congratulations to the year 12 students who have been awarded a place on the prestigious Liverpool University scholars programme. This offers high achieving Year 12 students the chance to take part in a range of activities aimed at supporting their entry into higher education and preparing them for university, such as application guidance masterclasses, lectures and academic key skills workshops. These activities are delivered in partnership with academics, undergraduates and the wider University, culminating in Scholars completing an academic assignment. This process helps to nurture well informed, confident applicants who are well equipped for their University experience. Successful completion of the programme and assignment leads to a guaranteed conditional offer at the University of Liverpool reduced by up to 2 A level grades and a financial bursary.
Form tutor Mrs Higgins said “This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to get a real first-hand experience of university life. The experience will be a huge benefit for them when starting their university applications at the end of year 12 and will equip them with valuable skills such as independent research techniques which will enhance their studies”.
Students unanimously agree with this sentiment. Luke Gibson, sixth form student said “The University scholars programme will give me a great opportunity, which will open new doors to my desired career”. This sentiment was echoed by sixth form student James Murray who said “I think that the Liverpool scholars programme will be hugely beneficial and I am looking forward to taking part in the challenge ahead”. The programme commences on 4th February and runs until autumn 2017.
