Newcastle University & Northumbria University presentation to Yr12

On Monday 15th June, Graduate Ambassadors from both Newcastle University and Northumbria University gave an informative talk about Higher Education and life as a student in Newcastle.  The talk was especially relevant as all the Yr12 students will be going to Newcastle for both universities' Open Day on Friday 26th June.

Felicity Mortimer from Newcastle University (who is a recent History graduate) and Scott McMullan from Northumbria Uni (who is a recent Computer Sciences graduate) also gave specific details about what their respective universities have to offer prospective students.  Students comments following the talk were very positive: 'it really got me excited about the prospect of going to university' and 'it was interesting and I'm looking forward to actually going round the unis next week and seeing them for myself'.
