Arabic Welfare recently took a group of newly arrived young people enrolled in a Certificate III in written and spoken English class at Kangan Institute Broadmeadows on a trip to RMIT University for a presentation and campus tour.
The purpose of the trip was to provide the students with an opportunity to learn more about the university and to get a sense of what it would be like to study in a university setting.
The RMIT Marketing and Recruitment team delivered a presentation that was tailored to the students’ needs and helped them with any questions they had.
The students were also able to visit a large lecture theatre, giving them a glimpse of what it would be like to study in a larger classroom.
After the campus visit, the group was taken to Lygon Street for lunch at Universal Restaurant, where they enjoyed some pizza and soft drinks provided by Arabic Welfare Incorporated.
During the lunch, both the Youth Worker and their Teacher were able to debrief with the students and get their feedback on the visit.
The visit to RMIT University was overall a valuable experience for the young students, giving them insight into what university life is like and helping them to feel more connected to their educational goals.
