Get on board Staffordshire University's Great Minds Bus Tour

“We are confident that the bus will excite prospective students about their University options and drive more people to attend open days at our new city campus where they can talk to subject leaders and discover more about the University and our courses.”

Georgina Kelly, Director of Marketing and PR

A specially modified double-decker bus is setting off across the region to give school and college pupils the chance to experience what their future could be like at Staffordshire University.

Over the next three months The Great Minds Bus Tour will visit 70 locations and offers students a taste of campus life with a range of immersive and interactive activities.

Pupils can jump into their futures by donning Virtual Reality headsets which feature 3D tours of different campus locations including the crime scene house, mock law courts, ceramics studios, journalism newsroom and motorsport labs.

Visitors can also enjoy popcorn in the 'cinema' while watching Staffs: The Movie and visit a replica student flat on the top deck complete with tea and coffee.

Georgina Kelly, Director of Marketing and PR, said: “The Great Minds Bus Tour is a great way to show off the brilliant facilities and experiences that Staffordshire University has to offer.”

“We are confident that the bus will excite prospective students about their University options and drive more people to attend open days at our new city campus where they can talk to subject leaders and discover more about the University and our courses.”

The bus provides a fun and informal setting for students to speak with advisors and find out about studying at Staffordshire University. Bookings for visits are coming in fast and schools and colleges are advised to book on the tour before places run out.

Laura Knight, Education Liaison Manager, added: “We've been amazed by the amount of interest that the bus has had already. We had the official launch on campus last week and received fantastic feedback from University staff and students.”

“We're incredibly excited to be taking the Staffordshire University experience out on the road so keep an eye out for us at a school or college near you!"
