Events and engagement opportunities
Events are a fantastic opportunity for students across all age groups to interact with various aspects of the university. We run many initiatives and event series including mentoring and masterclasses, to give students a flavour of university life and study.
Every spring term, we run a series of masterclasses for students in Years 8 to 13 to offer real insights into university study, particular topics, and subjects, and stimulate curiosity and engagement
Event themes can cover:
- Arts and Humanities
- Life, Environmental and Social Sciences
- Medical and Dental Sciences
- Science and Technology
Raising Aspirations In Secondary Education (RAISE)
The RAISE programme is a range of fun, interactive lectures, workshops, and competitive quizzes for students in Years 7 to 11. They are designed to motivate and inspire students around particular subjects, and in the long term raise achievement at GCSE.
