Last Friday, the University of Navarra organized their annual Engineering Day in Santa Monica School and some students of Year 12 attended .The objective of this event was to inform to the prospect engineering students of everything they needed to know before choosing this option; for example, the different types of engineering and possible jobs… For this, not only did they make a presentation, but also gave the students a challenge: to build their own car. After detailing every step of its construction, the future engineers ended up with a solar car that, if made correctly, would run by only shining some light on it. It was a challenge for our students but eventually got the car to move.
Students from various English and Spanish schools went, and although there was a lot of rivalry, they all had a wonderful time.
On Wednesday, November 13th, our students of Year 12 and 13 attended the universities Fair UNITOUR situated in El Pueblo español. Students received extensive information on where to study, what to study, scholarships, careers, international agreements, adaptation to the European Higher Education Area (Bologna), universities facilities etc. They also gave them a CD with information from 80 universities .
On Wednesday 23rd October, Bellver’s Year 12 students went on a day trip to Madrid in order to attend the 3rd British Education Fair, organised by the British Council. They were accompanied by Mr Déperrois, Principal of the school, and Mr Lynch, the school’s UCAS coordinator.
At the fair, the students had the great opportunity to meet around 30 British universities such as Imperial College, East Anglia or Sussex.
In addition to their visit to the British Education Fair, Year 12 Bellverians went on a tour of the European University of Madrid in the afternoon. There, they were taken around the university and given a presentation of the courses that the university runs. Visiting a university made the trip more realistic to our students. They were able to see what a university campus looks like and realised that they will soon be one of those students who are going to their next lecture.
Bellver’s pupils felt that it was a very productive trip and have come back to the island fully motivated to achieve their best in their future exam in order to one day be a university student too.
