Talks and Workshops

Our programme of talks and workshops cater for all learners and aim to provide quality information, advice and guidance. Sessions can be delivered at your institution or as part of a visit to the University.

Introduction to Higher Education

This inspiring talk introduces students to the world of higher education and can be tailored for specific year groups. It covers the benefits of studying at higher education level, and how to effectively research different courses and universities in order to make informed decisions about the future.

Life as a university student

Hear our current students speak frankly about their journey into higher education. While each has their own personal story, our students will cover a range of useful topics such as accommodation, managing their money and answering the question of 'what do uni students do all day?'.

Writing your UCAS application & Personal Statement

The Personal Statement is a crucial part of the UCAS application process and is the key opportunity for students to highlight why they should be offered a place on the course they’re hoping to study. This topic can be delivered as a talk or a workshop. It includes an overview of the UCAS application process and University interview process; useful advice, guidance and top tips on how to write the most effective Personal Statement.

Student finance and budgeting fundamentals

For many students, finance is a major concern and a barrier to entering higher education. This talk aims to dispel the myths and prepare young people with key budgeting skills through various interactive activities.

Employability Skills

The university experience is about gaining more than academic knowledge. This workshop looks at the wider skills and experiences that can be gained through higher education and how these are valued by employers.
