Women in STEM Subjects Access Day

As Hertford celebrates 40 years since its first intake of women undergraduates, we held an Access Day for female state school students interested in pursuing STEM subjects at A Level and beyond.

The Access Day, on Friday 26 June 2015, was open to students completing Year 11. It aimed to inspire participants to continue with Maths, the Sciences and Computing. Tutors and Lecturers – most of them women – in Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, Maths and Physics offered academic sessions and answer questions. There were also opportunities to look round the college, eat lunch on the grass in the front quad and to meet current women undergraduates in STEM subjects.

The Access Day was free of charge and generous support for travel expenses was available.
