Discovery Days (years 7-10)

Discovery Days are for school years 7-10 and designed to provide an introduction to a university setting and equip young people to make informed decisions about their future.

Primary page content

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, we have decided to cancel all of our Discovery Days until at least Easter 2021.

What to expect

The day includes a tour of our campus led by a student ambassador, who will be able to answer questions about student life and the transition between school and university. Attendees will also get involved in a series of workshops that will help them to gain a better understanding of what it means to be a university student academically, socially and financially.

Please note:

  • Students attending must come as part of a school visit accompanied by an appropriate number of school staff.
  • We can only offer up to 30 places per school per day.
  • Bookings must be made by a staff representative from the school through our enquiry form.
