I’d like to say a big thank you to the library staff for being so helpful and accommodating to our Sixth Form students this week. The Lancaster librarians engaged really well with our students offering their help and expertise.
I believe the visit is such a valuable experience for our students, not only for their studies, but for their understanding of the opportunities that university offers them.

You and your team were phenomenal, the kids got sooooo much out it and they’re so grateful! Not just literally in terms of resources, but also as a uni taster, which is so inspirational for them!

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for getting our students underway again with their EPQ. I've seen them again today for the first time since the trip, and they all agreed what a useful and interesting day it was.

I wanted to let you know that I have just been meeting up with the EPQ students for my weekly tutorial session with them. They have all clearly gained a great deal from their visit to Lancaster University last Thursday.   

It certainly opened their eyes to the vast amount of information and resources available. They also have a much greater understanding of the dangers of an over-reliance on rather indiscriminately searched websites.   

Many thanks for organising last week's visit for us.
