As part of our widening participation programmes, we offer in-school, classroom based activities where learners will discover what a university looks like, learn about aspects of student life and develop key vocabulary linked to university. 

Furthermore, they will gain an understanding of the journey from primary school through to higher education. 

Campus visits for primary schools

We are able to offer a limited number of half-day campus visits  particularly to Years 5 and 6 to ensure that our younger learners can continue to learn about higher education and student life.  

Visits must be arranged in advance, so that a suitable programme can be arranged and are subject to appropriate staff and venues being available. 

If you are a primary school teacher or staff member, please email The Schools and Colleges Liason Team to discuss requirements.

STEM Ambassadors 

Connecting young people with STEM industry experts 

STEM Ambassadors help to bring STEM subjects alive and provide real-life examples of industry careers, creating an invaluable link between schools and industry. For the last 20 years, they have been an incredible resource to schools, colleges and communities across the UK and can be requested to support STEM skills across the curriculum and cross-curricular work.
