Opportunities for primary schools


We are keen to support year 6 pupils with the sometimes difficult transition period from primary to secondary school and have designed a University Experience Day to make them feel excited about their future and encourage them to excel in secondary education. 

As part of the University Experience Day, theatre company 2Engage deliver an interactive performance which introduces the changes that pupils will face as they embark on their journey, alleviating some of the common concerns about secondary school and showcasing the great opportunities available to them.

Students will discover more about university life by taking part in a mini campus tour and attending an exciting science lecture.

Aimhigher have also developed a number of useful resources for primary school pupils, which are available to download via their website

The University Experience Day usually takes place in June, but due to the situation presented by COVID-19, the University of Birmingham has cancelled all on-campus events until September 2020. This means that this event is not running this year.
