Twelve further mathematics students from Liskeard School and Community College recently visited the University of Warwick, where they had their first real taste of university life.

We arrived and checked into our accommodation as we were staying in Halls on campus.

The group met at the Zeeman building, where they were met by Professor Jane Hutton and had welcome talks from Dr Ewart Shaw, from the statistics department and from Professor David Mond from mathematics. Students learned about courses that are available, as well as opportunities and careers after graduation. They were also informed about studying away from home and living independently.

The students then had a tour of the campus, given by two undergraduates, Luke and Richard, who had been to Liskeard School under the Warwick in Cornwall scheme. By staying in halls of residence overnight students had a real taste of a campus university.

The next day students were invited to two more lectures as well as a talk on student finances. There was an active session on problem solving, during which the students worked on different types of mathematical problems. This was led by Dr Richard Lissaman who will be doing some more work in the summer with Liskeard students.

Head of Maths at Liskeard School Nicky Hubartt said “Overall it was a very positive experience for our students and gave them a valuable insight into all aspects of university life. We would like to thank Professor Jane Hutton for organising the trip from the Warwick end.”
