Activities and Events

Be Inspired Days

Our Be Inspired Days offer students so much more than just a taster session. They can get a feel for a subject area, while getting to test-drive a selection of specific degree programmes, helping to familiarise them with new, exciting fields and courses. These practical, on-campus sessions place students in our modern facilities, next to our academic experts.

The events listed below offer your students the chance to explore a range of fields they may have not previously considered. Places are limited and we recommend early booking to avoid disappointment.

11 October

Students will examine contemporary questions and issues in society through the lens of social policy, international relations, politics, sociology, and criminology. Each session will show how the people who study these disciplines have an impact on us and the wider world.

Media shapes the narrative of the modern world, and through creative workshops in our industry standard facilities, students can find our first-hand what it is like to work in a tv studio, create a radio bulletin, build motion graphics, and make ethical decisions from industry-experienced academics. This day is an excellent opportunity for any student interested in film production, media production, media studies, or journalism.

'Be Inspired' - Humanities and Heritage

8 November

This day looks at how historic objects give us a view into past worlds and prompt numerous questions such as: where do they come from, what are they made from, what do they tell us about cultures in the past, why are they there and who might claim ownership of them. These questions are all considered through the lens of conservation, philosophy, English, and history, and are a great way to help students develop skills and techniques in the various disciplines.
