Last week our Pre-University Summer School students took to the streets of London on a number of class excursions. They used London as a classroom to enhance their studies in Medicine, Business Management, Law, Politics and Psychology.
Politics students were treated to a tour of the House of Commons, which is located only a short walk from both our Strand and Waterloo campuses, whilst our Law students visited the Royal Courts of Justice.
Our Psychology class visited the IoPPN for their class trip and, according to Student Ambassador Deborah Ayodele, students ‘…had the opportunity to see a mock MRI and understand a bit more about what it entails. Many were surprised to hear of its cost, as we were told even the mock scanners were an expensive £1 million +. It was a very informative session about the additional diagnostic methods used.’
Our Business Management students visited Shoreditch’s Silicon Roundabout. They learnt about the ‘flat white’ economy of the area whilst also discovering new and innovative ways of working. This included a visit to Ziferblat (a co-working space) and a glimpse at the Vice offices and the Google Campus. Students were also treated to a look at the exciting Box Park in Shoreditch, as well as the many walls of street art in the area.
Sadie Sweetland our Pre-University Coordinator said, ‘…students ended up really enjoying the tour and learnt a lot about how the area is growing due to an influx of new businesses. They also got to catch a lot of Pokémon which I think was an additional bonus for a lot of them!”
