The programme runs from 28 to 31 August 2023. 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. Throughout the residential, an experienced team of current undergraduate student ambassadors will be on hand to support you during your time with us.
During Year 13, students will also be paired up with a current undergraduate from the University and will have further support through e-mentoring on a weekly basis.
There are four broad streams that students can choose from. The stream must be related to your current studies or relevant to the degree programme you wish to study. The academic streams will include some of the following areas, but these are all subject to availability of academic staff:
- Humanities and Social Sciences – covering Geography, English, History, Law, Politics, Social Policy, Public Policy, Social Work, Sociology, Theology, Psychology
- Business – Accounting, Economics, Business, International Studies

In addition to academic lectures and seminars, there are also contributions from external organisations.
