Discovery Days

Discovery Days

Applications for Summer Term 2024 are now closed!

Discover the University on a campus visit!

Discovery Days offer engaging and hands-on sessions with our academic experts. Children also get the opportunity to meet current students and take part in an interactive campus tour.

We visit your class in school before the day to introduce the concept of university and the campus visit theme. After the Discovery Day, we visit your class again to further pupils' learning with an additional aspiration-raising activity of your choice. Our final visit in school will be to reflect on what pupils experienced and allow them to consider their future aspirations. 

For more information about your choice of aspiration-raising activites that take place after the campus visit, please visit this page.

"The children were inspired by the students they met on the day. They got the chance to see what living at university is like and everything the University has to offer."
