On Thursday 27th March, 27 Year 8 students were given the opportunity to visit one of the top universities in the UK, the School of African and Oriental Studies (SOAS). As part of IntoUniversity’s ‘Buddy’ programme, they worked with students from all over the world to learn new languages and to find out more about university life.

“SOAS was a great university and we had fun learning new information about universities. We also learnt languages and had a tour of the university including the library which had 1.5 million books! The SOAS students were great and they were very polite and friendly. After this trip I was very eager to go to a university and achieve a high standard. I hope there are more opportunities and trips like this!”

The success of the trip was mirrored by SOAS who have since written an article on their website. To have a read please click on the link below:
