Discover University aims to give young people the opportunity to experience a taste of life at NCI and to see College as part of their future.
This six day summer programme is for students in 2nd, 4th and 5th year and involves learning through fun and exciting projects. Students also get a taste of our core subject areas of Business, Marketing, and Computing, along with visits to exciting and innovative companies in the Docklands area, to show how higher education translates into the working world.
Students will complete a project as part of Citrus Saturday to encourage the development of basic business and life skills. Citrus Saturday is an experimental learning programme developed by University College London, aimed at teaching entrepreneurship and enterprise skills to young people around the world. Participants create a lemonade product, brand it and sell it to the public and then keep the profits from their work.
The programme finishes with a Graduation Ceremony and BBQ for the students, their parents and invited guests to celebrate their achievements. The project work from the week is also displayed.
