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. Our Be Inspired events are open to Key Stage 5 students, and places are limited so we recommend early booking to avoid disappointment.
