Description

A group of sixth formers from Merchants’ Academy from Withywood in Bristol, recently visited the Systems Centre,in the Faculty of Engineering, and spent the day with postgraduate research students to find out about University life, systems engineering and robots! Their teacher was delighted that his Design and Technology students were invited to meet current Bristol students and ask questions that parents and teachers are not able to answer, like ‘How do students really live?’ , ‘How much money do you have?’ and ‘What do you eat?’, as well as questions on how to find courses, make applications, and of course tuition fees and loans.
