The opportunity to take parts in trips, visits as well as once in a lifetime experiences form a core part of Aston University Sixth Form.
We believe that some of the best learning occurs outside the classroom which is why we have a high frequency of trips to employers, industry, trade shows national competitions.
We want our students eyes and minds to be opened to the world around them and for them to experience the world first-hand which is why we have such a strong international trips programme. Our staff are passionate about promoting these opportunities which is why so many give up their time to facilitate these experiences for our students. As well as being able to undertake work experience and visits independently every Monday, we have a wide variety of sixth form specific trips and visits.
These include day trips to different engineering contexts like construction sites and factories to national exhibitions and competitions; as well as visits to universities including Oxford and Cambridge.
Many students undertake residential trips whether in the UK for example with the Royal Navy or Biology Field Trip or abroad on our Ski Trips, or an international expedition.
