The Imperial campus welcomed Week Two with some hard work on Monday, as students got stuck in ahead of their final lessons and assignments. The academic programme is hotting up, and there was a studious atmosphere among the cohort as they made real progress with their projects.
A weekend without lessons had given them a chance to rest up ahead of the crunch time, and Sunday’s Great Debate had quenched their thirst for learning. The students devoted much of their free time to researching, fact-checking and writing as they made sure they were in the best possible position for hand-in.
There was time for fun and games though, as a group headed off with the aim of striking lucky at the bowling alley, whilst others chatted and enjoyed a break from their work. The evening also brought some respite, as the students attended a talk on UK universities. The talk covered a range of aspects of university life, from UCAS to the odd quirks that characterise some of the country’s oldest learning institutes!
The students found the talk very informative and it will be immeasurably useful to those interested in pursuing higher education in the UK. Certainly Imperial is an inspiring locale, and the ORA programme is enough to whet their appetites for a future in such surroundings!
The finish line is in sight for the students, and they are now focused as ever with graduation on the horizon. The work projects are coming together, and everyone is finding a way to continue having fun and socialising even in the final sprint to the end.
