School and College Outreach
The Student Recruitment team provides a link between Northumbria University and schools, colleges and individuals. We offer guidance, support and information to help prospective applicants, their teachers, parents and carers make informed choices about Higher Education.
Our team of graduate ambassadors and outreach coordinators visit schools and colleges to deliver our Evolve and Junior Evolve programmes, as well as events such as Careers Fairs. We also welcome groups on-campus and run sessions for teachers and advisors.
Delivered by our team of Graduate Ambassadors, Evolve offers schools and colleges the opportunity to tailor-make a programme of presentations and workshops specific to the needs and interests of their students. All activity is aimed at Year 12 & 13/first & second year of college students.
Our activity is aimed to be interactive and provide ‘hands-on’ learning, supporting students through their sixth form/college studies and their journey to Higher Education. Activity can be delivered throughout the academic year and all our activity is delivered free of charge.
These interactive sessions give students the necessary skills to succeed in sixth form/college and what to expect in their two years of study. It is expected that these sessions will be delivered in the first term of sixth form/college.
These sessions are aimed at introducing students to all aspects of the Higher Education research and application process. The majority of these workshops work better before students begin their application for university.
These sessions are aimed at students entering the application process to University, moving through vital sessions on personal statement writing, student finance, as well as results day and the clearing process.
Student Life at University
These sessions explore various aspects of how to make the most out of university and what opportunities Higher Education can provide. These presentations can benefit students pre or post the application process.
Specific Northumbria University Sessions
These sessions are primarily focused on Northumbria University and what it has to offer potential students. It is expected that we only deliver these sessions those who have not yet applied to university.
