Teaching at Leeds TrinityDate Posted: 13/02/2013 | Posted In: Latest news
Fifty 1st Year students recently attended a Primary Education Focus Day at Leeds Trinity University to find out more about how to apply and how to get into a competitive course. They also had a look around the University’s campus and took part in a question and answer session.
Lucy Wright who is responsible for schools and college liaison work at Leeds Trinity, commented:
“Leeds Trinity University is proud to be in partnership with Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College. We were pleased to welcome so many QE students onto our campus and found them to be enthusiastic, intelligent and able to question and find out relevant information. We are extremely keen to develop further links with QE and enjoyed meeting their students very much”.
Student, Emily Gibson, was equally positive and said:
“The day was very helpful, especially the information on the personal statement. It was also useful to find out about the entry requirements.’’
Laura Senior added:
“This was my first visit to a university, so it was good to be able to look around and see the facilities. It was also really helpful to confirm that primary education is going to be the right course for me”.
Luke Pearson concluded:
“I didn’t know a great deal about the application process before I went. The visit showed me what grades I need to work towards and that entry requirements for primary education are going up!”
