Ten QMC students are about to get a real taste of life as a university undergraduate when they attend the first of four on-campus events at the University of Reading, as part of the Reading Scholars Programme.
The QMC students, who are all on course to obtain good grades at A Level or equivalent, secured their place after completing the application process, which saw more than 250 students from across the country apply.
The Reading Scholars programme is offered across various strands including Biology, Chemistry, English Literature, Mathematics and Modern Languages and QMC will be represented by at least one student in each of those subjects, a fantastic achievement. The programme features input from leading academics, current undergraduate e-mentors and university alumni. It also aims to challenge participants academically and to enhance their current studies.
The students will enjoy masterclasses led by academics in their subject of choice, a ‘Student Experience Day’ in February, a Study Skills Session and finally a three day Summer School in June/July. Furthermore, students who successfully take part in the Scholars programme and who go on to apply for an undergraduate course at the University of Reading, are guaranteed to receive either an invite to interview or a conditional offer. Applicants who go on to select Reading as their firm choice institution are also eligible to apply for a £1000 Scholars bursary in their first year.
