Each student will experience first-hand what life studying and living at a research-led university is like by staying for four days and three nights in the University halls of residence and attending academic sessions in an area of their interest. During the evenings, students will be able to take part in social activities and will also have the opportunity to take a tour of the UK’s second city, Birmingham. Throughout the residential, there will be a team of current undergraduate student ambassadors on hand to support within a relevant academic stream to support and advice.
There are two broad academic streams that applicants can choose from and the academic stream must be related to current studies or relevant to the degree programme students wish to study. The academic streams will include some of the following areas, but these are all subject to availability of academic staff:
- Humanities – Law, History, English, Philosophy, Theology etc.
- Biological and Health Sciences – Physiotherapy, Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Biology, Biomedical Material Science, Chemistry etc.
- Engineering - Civil, Electronic, Electrical and Systems, Aerospace, Chemical, Materials Science, Nuclear.
In addition to academic lectures and seminars there are contributions from external organisations.
