The importance of such visits is to empower youth and lead them towards a successful and flourishing academic future. This opportunity will better prepare the students for university life and allow them to gain insight on their plans beyond secondary school. We hope to assist the youth of our society to establish their identities as professional individuals who contribute to the wellbeing and the development of our communities.
Campus visits are a very crucial part of moving towards higher education. Such events help young individuals and potential university students with the process of choosing which university to attend or what majors to select. Indeed, it is very difficult for high school students to make a decision that will determine their professional careers and affect their life in general. This visit was designed to allow students to explore university and campus life and ensure that they do not regret any decisions they take or feel disappointed with the choices that they have made relating to the university and their higher studies.
We would like to thank all students for attending this visit and wish them the best of luck in their future endeavours and academic journeys. And we thank all the staff that participated in the success of those visits.
