University Explored


This full day event will take place on the University campus. It will be led by a member of the Widening Participation team and supported by a number of Student Ambassadors who are current students at the University. Schools have the opportunity to select from our menu of activities in order to tailor the morning of the visit to their students’ needs and interests.
