Essential sessions to introduce and conclude your project


Aspiration activities

As well as helping children finding out what university is all about, our Discovery Days programme also aims to help them develop some of the skills they need to succeed in learning and in life.

Our Aspiration Sessions, which are delivered in school after your campus visit, help nurture a range of personal, academic and social skills.

Look at the menu of sessions below to choose the one which best meets the needs of the children in your class.


 Additional activities between sessions

We have compiled a range of additional activities relating to university. These activities can be downloaded and printed to provide your pupils with additional resources to learn about university.
