Discovery Days

Discovery Days are for school years 7-12 and are designed to provide an introduction to a university setting. They aim to equip young people to make informed decisions about their future.

Please note, due to Covid-19, we will not be running Discovery Days in the Autumn term. We do plan to run Discovery Days in the Spring and Summer terms, dates and bookings should open in October 2021.

What to expect

Discovery Days are tailored to the year group attending to provide relevant information for their educational journey.

Most days will include a campus tour led by a student ambassador, who will answer questions about student life and the transition between school and university.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a series of workshops that will provide a better understanding of being a university student academically, socially, and financially.

Please note:

  • A typical Higher Education Discovery Day runs from 10am – 2.30pm
  • Students attending must come as part of a school visit accompanied by an appropriate number of staff
  • We can only offer up to 30 places per school per day
  • Bookings must be made by a staff representative

Upcoming dates
