Ahead of selecting their GCSE subjects, Year 9 Melbourn Village College students have attended an Eyes on the Prize Day at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge.
The day started in a lecture theatre where students were encouraged to think about their journey through education.
A visit to a careers fair and a tour of the ARU campus followed.
Student Faith Crockford said: “It was very informative.”
Arthur Gomm commented: “It made you much more aware of the apprenticeships around and I’d like to get one in construction or plumbing. Lots of my friends, who hadn’t thought about going to university before, are now saying they really want to go.”
And Mitch McCabe added: “It opened my eyes to going to university.”
