HEALTHCARE students at the Solihull Sixth Form College are getting a taste of university life after being accepted onto a course.

The 15 teenagers are taking part in the Aston University Pathways to Healthcare Programme which helps students develop knowledge and skills and give them an insight into university life.

There is an emphasis on courses such as Medicine, Optometry, Pharmacy, Audiology, Psychology and the Allied Professions across the 18-month programme will help students make informed choices about their university courses and future career paths.

The programme’s sixth cohort launched during half-term and a full programme of events is planned, starting with a Pharmacy Taster Day.

Curriculum leader for Natural Sciences at Solihull Sixth Form College, Joseph Wright, said: “15 students accepted onto this brilliant programme is the most students we have ever had and we are delighted for these students.

“There is a lot of fantastic potential in these students, which I hope the programme will help them to realise.

“Together with the students who are part of the College’s Pre-Medical School enrichment, we will be working hard to support these students to ensure they get the most out of this fantastic opportunity.”
