Exploring University Together

Exploring University Together

We are pleased to announce that the next set of events are due to take place on the following dates:

  • Saturday 20 April at University of Nottingham
  • Thursday 2 May at Nottingham Trent University

Exploring University Together is a collaborative event between the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University. 

Tailored to Year 10 pupils and their parents/carers, families are invited to join us to explore university facilities, learn more about the benefits of higher education and dispel the myths associated with student finance. 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 event will include a ‘student life’ session, where pupils and their parents/carers will be able to ask current students questions about their experiences of higher education, as well as an opportunity for families to discover more about university themselves during a tour of the campus. All visitors are invited to stay after the event to enjoy a free selection of buffet-style food. More information about the event can be found on Nottingham Trent University's website.
