Post-16 students

Post 16 students in a classroom

We offer sessions to introduce students to the idea of going to university, and due to the current restrictions regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19), these are run through our online platforms.

Typically, we would visit schools or colleges, as well as  offer on-campus events to enable students to work with our academics and cutting-edge facilities. We hope to be able to welcome your students on to campus again soon.

Discover Days

Discover Days enable post-16 students (Years 12 & 13 and access students) to get hands-on and interactive understanding of a given subject area and a feel for university life.

Discover Days


Open to students who are heading towards the end of their secondary and A-level education, our bespoke workshops cover everything from writing a sparkling personal statement to transitioning to higher education with confidence.

Our workshops give students an informative, yet interactive, experience. They will learn how, why, and when to apply for university, but the workshops are also designed to calm nerves, as well as explore the benefits of going to university.

Our workshops support your students through their next educational steps. It’s true that many students face barriers to higher education, and we’re here to make sure they can be overcome. Sessions will be delivered online either live or pre-recorded with a live Q&A option.

We are open to customising the workshops, working with teachers, to ensure that the sessions will be the most impactful they can be. Typical workshop topics include:

  • Confidence-building for higher education
  • UCAS applications
  • Personal statement writing
  • Study skills for Level 3 students
  • Student funding applications and budgeting
  • Student life
  • Stress management

For more information on these or to book a workshop in please email Maciej and Siobhan at
