Students enjoy taste of university life

Students from Bradford College have been getting a taste of university life.

A Level students from the college have been enjoying a summer school at neighbouring Bradford University.

Nine students spent four days with the Faculty of Life Sciences and took part in a range of activities including a lecture about the effects of medicine on the body that involved a human patient simulator called iStan, or Stan for short. Stan, a mannequin that blinks, breathes, sweats and has a pulse, helps students understand how medications work.

The students were given guided tours of the campus, including the Analytical Centre and Engineering Centre. They also explored the engineering laboratories, worked on a chemistry project and met research students to learn about what research involves.

Having completed the summer school, the College students will receive 8 UCAS points should they decide to apply to study a degree at the university.

The students took part in the summer school as part of their work experience week and it was arranged through the Bradford College Placements Team which works closely with employers and other organisations to find valuable placements and opportunities that provide students with hands-on experience of the world of work or further study.
