Fulham Boys go ‘IntoUniversity’
A number of boys from The Fulham Boys School were recently given the opportunity to spend two days with the ‘IntoUniversity’ mentors who provide innovative programmes to support young people to attain a university place or another chosen aspiration.
The two days were run in conjunction with Imperial College London, built to inspire boys to consider studying medicine after school.
Day 1: allowed the boys to talk to mentors about their experience of university. They then did a circus activity where they discussed housing, designed a society, looked at Russell Group Universities and learned how to budget with a student loan.
Day 2: was a chance for the boys to visit Imperial College London. With this the boys were able to look around the university the lecture theatres, halls of residence and see some new research in action.
The highlight of the day was meeting 4th year medical students. The boys spent time talking to them about their experience of studying and were also given the opportunity to be taught by them about the cardiac system in a lecture theatre.
Another excellent opportunity for our boys to aim high and aspire to great things.
