As students begin their journey into higher education their requirements for information will evolve. The University’s UK Schools and Colleges Engagement Team offers a variety of sessions and activities including workshops, presentations and events that are designed to engage with students, fully informing them about higher education to allow them to make an informed decision about their future.

Sessions can be tailored to groups of any size and can include interactive elements. All presentations last 30 minutes and can be delivered as part of an interactive session lasting up to an hour, including topics including:

  • personal statements
  • student life
  • student finance
  • study skills
  • interview skills
  • subject talks
  • parent talks
  • applying through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS)
  • introduction to university

Taster days

We aim to make our taster days relevant to your students by tailoring them to your needs as much as we can. We will always include a welcome session and campus tour, giving students the best introduction possible to our university, and will provide the opportunity to discuss specific requirements prior to booking. Alternatively, you can register to visit one of our open days as groups from schools and colleges.

Upcoming Taster Days:

  • Thursday 9 March 2017
  • Wednesday 10 May 2017

You can contact the Schools Liaison Team if you have other dates that you would like to attend a Taster Day
