Staffordshire University’s Great Minds Bus Tour came to North Shropshire College’s (NSC) Oswestry Campus today. The experience was available to students looking to progress on to a higher education course in September 2017 so they can see what university has to offer them. The tour bus provided an immersive experience of Staffordshire University directly to the College, NSC students saw a film about the University and experienced life at the University through Virtual Reality.
