Aspirations to Education
We asked students ‘How likely are you to apply to a highly selective university?’ before and after the course. There was 78% increase in students very likely to apply to highly selective universities, and an 89% decrease in students ‘not very likely’ to apply to highly selective universities.
Changing Perceptions of University
We asked students for a single word they associated with ‘university’ at the beginning and end of the course. Student’s perceptions shifted from thoughts of university life as ‘hard’, ‘stressful’ and ‘busy’ to viewing university as ‘challenging’ requiring ‘perseverance’ and ‘dedication’. Students also left the course associating university with independence, passion and growth.
