The Ucas Day
Many university visits are rather pedestrian affairs, but Kalisher believes such experiences must be stimulating and questioning and should reflect the theme of inspiring advocacy that lies at the heart of everything we do.
Core elements for a Kalisher UCAS day are:
- active student Ambassador engagement, including a tour of vibrant university student areas;
- UCAS advice, with pre and post UCAS day material given to schools;
- an ‘inspiring advocacy’ exercise, involving university departments (law, politics and management faculties in 2015); and
- Kalisher trustees, with ongoing support and links with university for staff and pupils.
The Kalisher UCAS day at Sheffield university provided Yr 12/13 pupils aged 16-17 with an enjoyable and challenging Russell Group experience in the Summer term after exams.
