Students Group Work

Masterclasses

Masterclasses provide students with an opportunity to gain experience running workshops, encouraging and managing debate among those taking part.  Groups of 6th form students visit the university and are given a short lecture on a given topic, which is generally selected as being both topical and controversial in order to provoke debate.

There are a number of questions set for the workshop and these do not focus on the detail but ask students to form an opinion and argue in support of it.  Students then manage the debate, ensuring every opinion is heard and valued.  This gives our students experience in these sorts of situations as well as an opportunity to be ambassadors for the university, offering advice and answering questions for the students of tomorrow.
