We understand that visiting universities before applying to them is crucial. As well as our usual open events, we also offer a number of experiential visits to school and college students who would like a unique insight into degree-level study before applying to university. See below for descriptions of a selection of our most popular packages:
Our Discovery Days give students an insight into the world of HE with interactive sessions delivered by our friendly academic staff. Students can also meet our current students and tour our campuses.
- Year 10 discovery days are aspiration-raising events designed to excite and enthuse students in a particular subject through participation in engaging academic workshops. The workshop sessions will give students a hands-on experience to aid their decision making process around progression to higher education.
- Post-16 discovery days give students the opportunity to gain a clear understanding of the degree programmes at the University of Cumbria. They provide a great opportunity for students to attend seminars and practical sessions and make informed decisions about their future. The Post-16 days are open to school/college groups and individual bookings.
