Schools and community
We are keen to explain and share our knowledge and research outside of the university. Examples include:
- Talks on specific topics to schools and community groups to enhance learning and for general interest.
- Student placements that provide in-depth support to local schools and teachers in particular areas of the curriculum.
- School visits to the university to help pupils see what learning a subject at university is really like and help raise education aspirations.
- Wonder - we play a central role in putting on events for the University's community day.
If you are interested in finding out more about what's possible contact our departments.
Some of our departments have more information about what they provide:
The volunteers were down to earth, great role-models and gave some very effective one-to-one individual attention to all our students… It was a brilliant success… I have no doubt that there were some conversations about university going on between our students and their families as an additional consequence.
