Well I wil be starting 6th Form College from next week and we have to sign-up to some Enrichment Programs but I don't know which ones to pick,the 6th Form said they would benefit us when applying for a University course? LOL
Here are the options...
Auditioning for Preforming Arts Schools
College Musical Production
Driving Theory Lessons
Duke of Edinburgh Award
English Language & Literature XL
Maths XL (STEP & AEA & UK Senior Maths Challenge)
Mock Trial (Solicitor & Barrister practise)
Music Lessons (Instrumental Tuition)
Music Technology (Beginners)
Music Technology (Advanced)
Rock Climbing Club
Sociology Film Club
Spain - History, Language & Culture
The Business Club (Entrepreneur)
VoiceBox (The College Magazine)
World Cinema (Critical Studies)
Has you can see I have a wide range of activites to choose from, we have to pick atleast one! We will find out more information about them next week at the Enrichment Fair!
Which activities do you think would benefit me most with my AS-levels which are Economics, Geography,Maths with Stats & Politics along with me wanting to go into a Economical/Finance related career?
And all of this is offered at your college?
Well, for economics/finance, then I would definitely suggest Maths XL. Business club
may also be useful.
Beginners Spanish/ Chinese
I think could possibly be a good one. Having some sort of knowledge of a foreign language is always beneficial, but I think it can look quite good to universities. Spanish would probably be the better option if you'd just want to go along, learn a little bit, then not come back to it, as it would be far
easier than Chinese. I'm guessing you'd come away with a pretty basic level, but enough to get you by if on holiday or similar. Chinese I can't see you getting very far with if it's just an enrichment course.
Maybe you'd like to take a sport
? It may not be directly related, or particularly "enrichment-y," but I think playing a sport regularly is always good for everyone.
Duke of Ediburgh award
is well respected. It involves a sport, a service, a skill and an expedition, so you'll get a lot out of it.
I think they're all very good opportunities, and you're extremely lucky to have them. You'll do well with any of them, except perhaps
auditioning for performing arts schools,
citizenship group (sounds a bit... odd)
christian union (if not a Christian - pretty obvious)
driving theory (it'll come with driving lessons if you take them)
Looking through that list, there are about 20 that I'd absolutely love to do. My school offers a couple of sports, Young Enterprise and drama. Which isn't bad at all, but I'd love to have the selection you have....
