University Centre holds JIBSiversity Challenge attended by current students, new students and graduates

Wednesday 6 May 08:00

Over 50 people attended the quiz night at Jersey International Business School University Centre. The biggest JIBSiversity Challenge yet saw current students, new students and graduates come to the Business School on Tuesday 21 April.

22 current students, seven graduates, 15 students who are due to start studying in October and staff and lecturers took part in the University Challenge-inspired quiz with topics including current affairs, Jersey, sport, music and celebrities. The quiz was followed by pizza. All student year groups plus staff and lecturers were mixed into different teams, providing new students with the chance to get a feel for what staying in Jersey to study will be like when they start this October.

The event forms part of the social calendar put together for and by students, and is the first of a more regular range of social events being planned for the rest of this year and next.

Joseph Peacock, a first-year student rep, commented:

“The JIBSiversity Challenge was a great way for past, present and future students to mix under informal circumstances. Fun-filled and engaging, the event was a fantastic way for students with different experiences to discuss current affairs and views about the course. It was a night to remember, with the room full of energy.”

The University Centre also held a very well-attended Open Evening for the 2-year BSc (Hons) International Financial Services degree on Tuesday 28 April. Over 60 people came, gathering information in the Student Lounge on degree content, the structure of a University of Buckingham degree and how to apply as well as visiting the stands where they could talk to current students, graduates and student mentors. There was also the opportunity to meet representatives from Partners of the degree’s unique Undergraduate Employment Programme, who explained how students can access their 2-day-a-week paid work placements throughout the 2 years of their degree.

Applications to start the degree in October 2015 are still being accepted by Jersey International Business School. To find out more visit www.jerseyibs.com or contact the Admissions Officer on 816333 or email info@jerseyibs.com.
