Visit boosts business students' studies
First year A-Level Business students at South Essex College spent a day visiting the London School of Economics (LSE) and the Bank of England to further their studies.
In the morning the group visited LSE and had a talk on applying for and studying at university. This was followed by a tour around the campus in Aldwych to see the state of the art library and student facilities. The group met current students and found out all about student life.
The afternoon was spent at the Bank of England Museum where students found out about the role of the Bank of England and the impact of its actions on the economy.
A-Level Business Lecturer Charlotte Condon said the trip motivated students to aim for high grades in their A-Levels so they can access world class institutions like LSE.
She said: “The students really enjoyed their day out in London. They were impressed by the state of the art facilities at LSE, and the visit to the Bank of England was effective in helping to bring learning to life.
“They are now even more motivated to work hard in the second year of their A-Levels so they can achieve high grades to get into the university of their choice.”
