The College of Life and Environmental Sciences offer an array of outreach activities with the aim of imparting knowledge, raising aspirations, and inspiring young people to fulfil their potential.
Within Biosciences a range of our activities take place on campus, enabling you to see our exceptional facilities, ample study space and beautiful grounds, all of which make the University of Birmingham a unique and exciting place to study. Alternatively, we may be able to deliver talks and workshops at your school or college.

Opportunities and activities for students
Our Outreach and Student Recruitment teams work with schools and colleges to help students explore the world of higher education and decide on the best route for their future. We work particularly closely with state schools in the West Midlands on a range of outreach activities to raise aspirations, improve motivation and encourage students to consider university.
