College Hosts University Masterclass Day
Posted on 2nd February 2018
On 25th January, the College hosted a large group of academics from Aberystwyth University in a programme of subject extension masterclasses. Individual departments benefitted from interactive workshops delivered by experts in their respective fields.
The range of subjects covered was remarkable. The Politics Department had a workshop called In Trump's shadow: Change and continuity in US politics; the English Department a workshop on the novel Frankenstein; Law, an Omissions and Criminal Liability workshop; Business, workshops on both Marketing and Finance and the Languages Department had workshops in translation in Spanish, French and German.
These sessions form a valuable experience for students in two main ways. Firstly, they enable a “taster” of subjects before making important Higher Education subject choices and secondly, they provide real academic extension and evidence for university applications; something important in an increasingly competitive market.
After a successful day, we are looking to make the event an annual fixture for the benefit of students for years to come.
