Highlands students cook up a meal fit for a Prince!

His Royal Highness the Earl of Wessex will be meeting students from Highlands College as part of the 60th anniversary celebration of the Duke of Edinburgh Award (DoE). Highlands Culinary Arts students will be preparing and serving lunch to HRH and our very own DoE students had the opportunity to chat survival skills with the Prince.

Degree students achieve outstanding results! Apply now for September 2016

UCJ is delighted to announce that the results for UCJ students completing Plymouth University programmes this year were as follows:

79 students achieved a qualification – BA or BSc; FdA; FSc; or Foundation Certificate

The proportion of students achieving an Honours degree with a 1st or 2.1 was 83%; this compares with the UK figure of 70%.

20% of students achieved 1st class honours degree

Ben Bennett, Head of Higher Education at UCJ said :

We are delighted to be celebrating the tremendous academic performance of our students, which is something for our island community to be proud of. Gaining a degree is still an important rite of passage for learners and is a significant step in improving a person’s employment prospects. The growth in uptake of on-island degrees reflects a growing awareness of the importance of high quality, cost-effective provision and we are delighted to be supporting so many learners to achieve their life goals.

We are very proud of our students’ achievements and wish them every success in their future careers or continuing studies.

We welcome late applications for courses starting in September 2016. Spaces available on Business & Management, Financial Services, and Sport & Management. Please find an application form at http://www.highlands.ac.uk/university-college/

How will life in Jersey be better by 2036?

How will life in Jersey be better by 2036?

No-one can predict the future. So we can’t say exactly how life will be 20 years from now, but we can say how we’d like things to turn out. The government of Jersey is putting together a long-term vision for the Island and wants your views on what’s good about Jersey today and what you want for the Island in the future. This survey is quick (ish), and easy to use and you’ll see how you grade Jersey at the end.

Take the survey: https://shapingourfuture.gov.je/

Please share it with friends and family. The more young people we get the views of, the more relevant the findings and the more likely it is that the final vision will reflect what people want for Jersey. The results will tell the Council of Ministers what you think we need to do to make Jersey a great place twenty years from now. Thank you.
