Kent Business School were delighted to welcome a fantastic group of Year 11 students from one of our Partner schools; Strood Academy.
The Strood Academy students visited our Medway campus yesterday to gain an experience of University life. Throughout the day they met academics, as well as some of our amazing Student Ambassadors and went on a tour of the campus.
They took part in a Team Challenge where they had the opportunity to create an original and innovative business product, with an overall winner selected. The students also attended a lecture to experience what it might be like as an undergraduate studying Business at Kent Business School.
An impressed Dr Sideeq Mohammed, who delivered the session, said:
‘The vibe in the room, the quality of answers and input coming from the students, the connection to the topic, was no different to an undergraduate seminar’.
The session was ‘Is Business Sustainable?’ and it was encouraging to see these younger students take the topic seriously and with great interest.
We organise outreach events and collaborate with schools, colleges and others to help students from all backgrounds learn more about their options. To learn more contact Brendan Hammond.
