School Visits

School Visits

What we offer

We regularly visit schools and colleges to deliver activities which raise awareness of why students choose to go to university, what everyday life at university is like, and to offer support with UCAS applications. Due to the current situation with Covid-19, we are able to offer online workshops – either fully live or pre-recorded with a live Q&A option. 

We also offer presentations and workshops on higher education topics. These are flexible and can be scheduled at a time and date to suit you and your students. Please get in touch to find out more, or to book a workshop, by emailing the team at visitus@marjon.ac.uk

School Visits - Moving Out

Moving out

University students are often be moving away from home for the first time, and will need to consider accommodation, bills and budgeting. We can talk about all of this, as well as covering the sports, clubs and work experience opportunities available as part of university life. Often, a current student at the university will come along to talk about their experience so far.

School Visits - Application Advice

We'll discuss the range of courses available and how to find out more about the key factors which might influence decisions.
