The Quest Academy is part of the National Collaborative Outreach Project (NCOP), which involves a number of students from Years 9 to Year 13.
Nine year 11 students attended SOAS University in London on Tuesday 2nd October “Goal setting event” and action planning to enable smooth progression to 6th Form and Higher Education.
We arrived at SOAS university and were greeted by the University ambassadors. The day began with a welcome presentation, followed by a SOAS quiz. Ambassadors from Roehampton, St. Mary’s and SOAS talked about their experiences at University, their courses, life on campus and accommodation.
After lunch we all had the privileged to listen to a under graduate about his experiences whilst he was undertaking his PhD in Thailand which was fascinating. The ambassadors took us on a tour around the University campus, the Brunei Gallery, Senate House and the fantastic library.
Our students from the Quest were very interactive, excellent answers in the quiz, and really good on debating. All wanted to know when the next event was.
