Heathcote EPQ students visit London School of Economics
Twenty of our Sixth Form students attended a bespoke academic trip to the London School of Economics (LSE) on Friday 7th December 2018. EPQ Co-ordinator Mr Angeletos reports back;
This trip was specifically designed to support our students with their extended project qualifications (EPQ). The day included a tour of the London School of Economics, life and experiences of undergraduates at LSE and why they should study at university. The main part of the day was spent in the LSE library (the largest social sciences library in London), where our students participated in an EPQ session on referencing and research run by LSE academic Dr Challis. All of our students were very positive about the trip, and the information and advice and guidance they received as this will inform their future choices about university options. Our Sixth Formers particularly enjoyed meeting LSE undergraduates who had studied the EPQ and asking them pertinent questions.
Mr Angeletos who organised the trip said: “Our students have benefited tremendously from this academic trip to the LSE, as it has given them valuable expert advice on university choices and most importantly how to carry out appropriate academic research, including how to write an academic bibliography”.
