Visit to De Montfort University (DMU)
Year 11 students who have applied to Wigston College Sixth Form for Autumn 2017 were invited to attend a visit to one of our partner universities – De Montfort, Leicester. The purpose of the visit was to encourage students to be aware of the higher education opportunities that would be open to them after their A level studies. Students were given a tour of the campus, seeing at first hand the amazing study resources and hi-tech facilities that are available for degree-level students. They even took a peek at the student accommodation and found out about living on a limited student budget! Lunch in the Student Food Village was greatly appreciated and also the chance to talk with current DMU students who gave an insight into what life is like as an undergraduate. The majority of Wigston College Sixth Form students go on to university after their A levels and students are supported throughout years 12 and 13 to consider all their higher education options and to ensure they make appropriate career and educational choices.
