Buckingham University – Year 12 University Life

Ten Year 12 Business students went to Buckingham University to learn more about life at University and to further develop capabilities that will set them apart in their future studies and beyond. We looked at the features and skills needed in a good team and learned about our own learning and thinking styles. Students participated in a range of activities to build team work, resilience, time management and problem solving skills with some students from other local schools, Business Angels and Young Enterprise representatives. They built bridges from newspapers, designed products using coat hangers and created an innovative footwear brand and campaign. The students also enjoyed a tour of the University and had the opportunity to talk to current students on the Business and Enterprise course at Buckingham as well as speak with the course Director.
