Campus visits

A campus visit can cater for groups of between twenty and fifty students and usually run from 10.30am-2pm (although earlier/later times can be arranged). We primarily run campus visits for students in years 10,11, 12 and 13, however we can run visits for students in other year groups.

A campus visit usually involves:

students touring the campus
  • An introductory presentation tailored to match the stage students are at from initial thoughts about ‘Why go to University?’ right through to practical advice on making UCAS applications.
  • Campus and accommodation tours; current students will take groups around the University for a guided tour. Students are given the opportunity to look around the campus, visit the sports centre, and see inside two types of student accommodation (if available). Tours can be tailored to the requirements of the students by adding in quizzes, questionnaires, and treasure hunts.
  • Lunch break; students usually get around 45-60 minutes for lunch, and are supervised by our student ambassadors during this time. Students can either bring a packed lunch with them or buy lunch from the on-campus catering outlets and campus shop. The University can provide students with lunch vouchers which can be used in the catering outlets on campus, this is then charged the to school or college.
  • Higher Education Activities; depending on the age of the students, we have a range of activities to take part in. These include skills workshops to aid communication and team work, finance and budgeting exercises, careers information plus arts based sessions and many more.
  • Student panel; this is an opportunity at the end of the day for students to quiz current undergraduate students with any questions they still have about university life. There are prizes for good questions!

All of our visits are specifically tailored to meet the needs and requirements of your students. Once a visit is booked, the member of staff organising the visit will contact the lead teacher/tutor to discuss individual requirements.

We run campus visits from both of our Colchester and Southend Campuses. If you are not sure which campus is best, give the Outreach Office a call (01206 873424) and we will discuss it with you.
