APU SummerSchool 2006 : Points of View

It is the time of life where you have to start making key decisions for yourself, that is one of the big challenges of going to University.

Ultralab (1990-2006) the leading learning, technology and research centre at Anglia Polytechnic University in Chelmsford Essex will be running the APU Summer School 2006 after a years break.

Ultralab (1990-2006) have previously run Summer School for APU in 2002, 2003 and 2004.

John Butcher, Manager Widening Participation Unit visited Ultralab (1990-2006) today to talk with Colin Elsey and Matthew Eaves about how the project could run in July 2006.

It has been decided to undertake the popular ‘Points of View’ model for the challenge, adding a more specific twist for the 25 young people undertaking the challenge, relating to University life.

The young people which take part in the APU Summer School are ‘first generation’ meaning that their parents did not go to University to undertake a degree course, this project enables those young people to experience University life first hand and come to a decision whether higher education is right for them.

An exciting project.
