Find a course

Get a flavour of studying at university

We frequently travel to schools and colleges across the UK and around the world to deliver information and talks on different aspects of university life, including the benefits of Higher Education, how to choose a course and student finance. Our world-class academics are also able to offer insightful talks and lectures, to engage and inspire your students. 

We welcome schools and colleges to visit our campus throughout the year so that students can enjoy study skills or subject-specific taster sessions or study skills and get a real flavour for studying at university.

If you are not able to visit us, we are pleased to offer virtual campus visits, which can be designed to suit the needs of your students, and a range of recorded sessions.  

Please use our online enquiry form to book a visit, talk or fair for your students. (Please see below for pre-16 requests.)
