We arrived at the main entrance and were taken to the Portrait Room, where we enjoyed a talk about Roehampton University, and all the courses on offer. The ambassadors introduced themselves and we were so surprised to see one of our Quest students helping out and chatting about what she studies at the university. Frankie Cummings left Quest in July 2021, she mentioned that she had been on the Aim Higher programme and how it helped her. It was great to see her, and our students were full of questions.
The ambassadors were extremely helpful and went out of their way to accommodate us right to the end of the day.
The taster session was on Law, during which a barrister who gave the talk introduced us to many different aspects of the law. Our students were fully engaged, particularly those who are keen to study law at university.
Frankie, our Lead Ambassador, then took us on a tour around the campus, which included student accommodation, the diner, the library (which is over three floors!), the chicken coop and several other departments.
All the Quest students were impressed with how the ambassadors talked to them and this made them feel at ease. Students mentioned that they didn’t know that universities included the fun events as well. They enjoyed the day and want to see what other universities have to offer.
