Sixth Form News & Opportunities

23rd September 2019:

“This year UKC has developed a first-of-its-kind online adventure game that simulates all the key elements of gaining a degree at Kent called the One Hour Degree. It is a narrative based game that allows players to test out decisions at University and see what the effects of those decisions might be.

The game was developed after significant research showed that many students were making choices early on in their student journeys that had a detrimental impact on their studies. Many of these students were high achievers who had performed extremely well in a school environment but had struggled to transition to university life and were not accustomed to asking for assistance or seeking out new resources that would help them.

The One Hour Degree game was released 3 weeks ago and has already been played over 3,000 times in nearly 90 countries. I am hoping that, by sharing it with school students who are currently considering their Higher Education options, it will help many more.The game can be started by clicking this link, it does not require a login and therefore can be played by anyone anywhere in the world (display is best in Google Chrome).”

The King’s School will be hosting a Study in Canada Fair on Monday 30th September at 7.30pm and they would like to invite our Year 11 and Sixth Form students to join them.
This is a fantastic opportunity for students to discuss their higher education options for studying in Canada with experts from a select group of top-quality Canadian institutions. Even if students aren’t sure about their next steps, they would benefit from finding out more about the exciting opportunities available to them.
Canada is internationally recognised for its competency-based teaching approach that prepares students to be productive in the workplace immediately after graduation. It also offers a fantastic post-study work visa programme, which allows students to stay in the country should they wish to work or travel in Canada.
The following universities will be present:
• Acadia University • Ryerson University
• Bishop’s University • University of British Columbia
• Carleton University • University of Guelph
• Centennial College • University of Toronto
• Concordia University • University of Waterloo
• Queen’s University
If you would like to attend, please email Mrs Ireland.

Any Students in Year 12 or 13 who are interested in English language, modern or ancient languages, or a related subject, there is an opportunity to undertake work experience with Dr Laura Bailey in the School of European Culture and Languages at the University of Kent. Students would undertake work independently at the Canterbury campus, under the supervision of Dr Bailey.
Please contact Mrs Ireland for any further information.
