Exploring University Together

Exploring University Together

Bookings have now closed for Exploring University Together 21/22. Further information about future events will be released on the website later this year

Exploring University Together is a collaborative event between the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University, designed to give Year 10 pupils and their parents/carers an opportunity to find out more about higher education.

For 2021/22, families are invited to one of our digital Exploring University Together events, providing up-to-date information on the benefits of higher education and how student finance works. Tailored to Year 10 pupils and their parents/carers, these events offer information and advice, to ease concerns and increase support for young people considering their options. Parents and carers who have previously attended, said they felt more confident in supporting their young person in making future decisions about higher education.

The main part of the event will be a ‘student life’ session, where pupils and their parents will be able to ask our current students questions about what university is like, and discover our students’ own journeys to, and experience of, higher education. Families who attend the online events will then be invited to an event on campus, where they will get to go on a tour, experience the university and meet current students.

Places are limited and will be prioritised across all schools to those who meet certain Widening Participation criteria, which are detailed in the booking form. Digital events are due to take place across March and April 2022. Bookings are due to open at the end of February , when Year 10 pupils and their families can book their places online.
