University experience days 

This is your chance to inspire your students to progress their studies onto Higher Education. By having a guided tour around our campus they will experience the opportunities available to 
them at university. Your time on site can be made bespoke to your students, with a range of workshops and activities on offer. To enquire, please email the Schools and Colleges Liason Team.


Our annual residential is designed to raise aspirations and encourage students to achieve the highest grades and successfully progress to university. Over three action- packed days and two nights, students will get to experience university life for themselves. They’ll explore our state-of-the- art facilities and get hands-on with the equipment in subject workshops; tour the campus and discover some of the courses we have to offer; take part in team building activities and socialise in our Students’ Union. And at the end of the day they’ll get a good night’s sleep in our halls of residence.
