University bus rolls into Priestley

hopeStudents from Priestley College enjoyed the sights and sounds of Liverpool Hope University without having to leave the college gates this week.

Lecturers from its School of Health Sciences and Department of Psychology delivered taster sessions on a specially-designed bus.

Sixth formers chatted to Hope’s student ambassadors and recruitment team who gave an insight into what the university has to offer.

The visit was part of Priestley College’s commitment to ensuring students have all the information they need to make an informed university choice.

“Every year we ensure as many universities as possible visit college to ensure our students are well informed,” said Senior Tutor Mark Eccleston.

“We also visit exhibitions and shows where the universities are gathered to give students a chance to ask about Higher Education.”

Former Priestley student Amy Worsley went on to study Fine Art at Liverpool Hope University, where she was awarded the FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technologies) and Liverpool Hope University Production Residency Award.

Her first professional exhibition, No Such Thing as Gravity is now on at FACT and runs until 5th February.

Amy said: “Liverpool Hope University has the knowledge, resources and tools that enabled me to build a foundation to becoming an artist and teacher. It not only provided the opportunity in creating connections with fellow artists, but also building networks throughout the art industry.

“The Fine Art course I studied has given me the confidence to explore different career paths. I am a working artist at the moment and would like to pursue a career in teaching.”
