School Visits, Extended Project Qualification, Compact and Compact Plus Summer Schools
A visit to University of Brighton will provide pupils with an opportunity to find out more about a university library – how it works, the information and services that it provides and how they might use it – providing them with an insight into life at university.
A visit can also provide pupils with an opportunity to develop their academic and information literacy skills, helping to prepare them for their Extended Project, university and life beyond school.
Library Session (30 minutes approx.)
The library session is led by University of Brighton library staff and gives students an introduction to locating materials for their assignments. Afterwards, students can have independent research time where they can make use of the extensive resources the library has to offer.
Research Skills Session: Aimed at EPQ Students (30 minutes approx.)
The research skills session adopts a step-by-step approach, providing tips and advice so that students can conduct effective research into their chosen subject. Students will be encouraged to think about the range of sources they can access and how to assess their usefulness through critical examination.
All visits by groups should be accompanied by school teaching staff. The school/college will be responsible for conduct and behaviour of groups of students attending library visits.
There are restrictions on the time of year visits can be accommodated.
