The School of Human Sciences has hosted the first fair for extended degree students in their foundation year, called “Freshers fair: destination London Met”.
The event showcased all the academic departments within the school, such as Applied Biology, Sports, Molecular and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Dietetics, Food and Nutrition, Biomedical Science, and research carried out by our staff. In addition to the academic areas being presented to the extended degree course students, the event also included support services available to students such as Library Services, Student Services and Alumni Office.
Ruth Eyob, a training coordinator at the Science Centre, was very pleased with the event and used this opportunity to tell students more about the new work-placement scheme. “This is a great chance for students to get crucial experience of working in a lab, and not have to take time off studies. The work placement is a one-year programme that carries 15 credits and runs throughout the year alongside studies. We understand that students have many commitments so we try and work according to their timetables,” says Ruth.
The fair was organised by the foundation year staff, and led by Jennifer Jacoby. “We wanted to show the students that we have a strong community and work together to provide them with the best university experience possible”.
“I am very impressed with everybody doing an excellent job in representing their departments and making this event such a success, we are already thinking of running it again next year!” added Jennifer.
