How our King's Links trips help pupils choose which universities to apply for

‘What is it really like to be here?’

Our Inspire King’s Links trips have proved a huge success, as part of the support pupils who are exploring a university pathway receive, when they start to work out which universities they might wish to apply for.  Less formal and crowded than University Open Days, more intimate than Offer Days, King’s Links trips give pupils an opportunity to visit recent King’s High leavers at their universities, who show our pupils around, and talk about their own experiences as students.   

Each new trip sees more pupils sign up, and our lastest – to Cambridge – was the biggest yet, with some 70 pupils from different year groups enjoying a day which included college tours, debates, a photographic competition, lunch, a walking tour, and plenty of opportunities to talk. We have visited a host of universities across the country – and beyond, virtually – and we are so grateful to all our former pupils who give their time so generously to offer this unique and invaluable insight into student life.
