Three sixth-form students have been invited to get a taste of what it’s like to study at one of the UK’s top universities.

Iqraa Suhail 17, Stephanie Clink and her twin sister Marsha, 18, who are all year 12 students, will be spending four days at the University of Lancaster in July.

The trio will experience subject-specific lectures and seminars alongside independent study and will also work towards an academic assignment.

Former Marsden Heights student Iqraa, from Blackburn, is currently studying A-Levels in Maths, Computer Science and Art, and will be taking part in the Architecture Summer School Programme at Lancaster University. 

She said: “I’m excited to visit Lancaster University, it’s a great opportunity to learn more about Architecture and to experience what it’s like to be a student at Lancaster.

"I heard about the Summer School Programme through one of my tutors.”

Marsha, from Accrington, who is studying Fine Art, Psychology and English Language and Literature said: “It’s a great opportunity to attend the Lancaster University summer school.

"I’m looking to apply to Lancaster as it’s got a fantastic reputation and was one of the only universities offering what I want to study.”

Stephanie, who is studying Sociology, Psychology and History, and will attend the Sociology Summer School Programme, added: “I’m looking forward to visiting Lancaster University to see what the university is like.”
