We focus on providing information about higher education so students can make informed decisions about their future. You can choose sessions from our range of presentations and activities. We are also able to plan or deliver bespoke sessions if you have a specific request.
Sessions can take place on campus or in your school or institution.

Our summer schools
are a chance for widening participation students to spend time on our city centre campus, meet current students and attend academic sessions.
We run residential summer schools for Year 10 and Year 12 students. All our residentials are completely free to attend and accommodation, food and transport are included.
We believe in opening the opportunities of education to everyone. University can be life changing but that does not mean it has to be a leap into the unknown.
If your students are unsure about going to university or what they want to study, attending a residential could help them with their decisions.
