Students at HE, whether at college or university, will need to acquire a whole bunch of new skills and further develop others.

LOLS has been developed by LIFT OFF in collaboration with our partner schools, colleges and universities to help start this ball rolling and hopefully, make the whole process less painful.

Pupils working

What is it?

LOLS is for Senior Core Pupils who are definitely interested in going on to study at HE level after school. It is delivered in school by post-graduate tutors (that's clever people who already have a degree under their belts who are studying for a Masters or a Doctorate) who work with up to 20 pupils in each school on skills such as critical thinking, group working and presentation skills.

When does it happen?

From early September up to December, tutors will deliver 5 workshops sessions to groups in schools. LOLS also includes a campus visit, including a lecture and a seminar (don't worry if you don't know what a seminar - we cover it in LOLS!)

Who can take part?

Senior Core Pupils

Anything else I need to know?

LOLS is assessed (eep!) by a group presentation and is credit rated with 3 credit points at Level 6 on the Scottish Credit and Qualification Framework. There's lots of help from the tutors, and all participants will get really useful feedback as part of the process.
