THREE hardworking students fought off over 250 applicants from across the UK to secure places onto the prestigious University of Reading Scholars programme 2016/17.
Harry Bull, Emily Lowe and William Hudson recently received letters from the university confirming their places onto the year-long Scholars Programme.
The programme gives a real taste of life as a university undergraduate and provides practical support from leading academics and current undergraduates. Students are also assigned an e-mentor for help and advice.
The students choose which subject area they wish to partake in – Harry and William chose French and Emily chose Spanish.
The programme kicks off with a series of introductory sessions and across the year the students will be invited to attend masterclasses as well as undergraduate shadowing opportunities.
Mark Vinall, Principal of Palmer’s College said: “This is a great achievement and a wonderful opportunity for our brilliant students”.
