Future Students Office

Schools and College Services

We work with students of all ages and backgrounds, parents, teachers and advisers to encourage participation in higher education and to recruit and convert undergraduate students to the University. Our work covers students from primary school age through to mature learners. We organise university experience days and summer schools, attend UCAS exhibitions, deliver higher education information talks and attend events held in schools and colleges, and arrange an extensive annual programme of Open Days, UCAS Visit Days and Teacher Conferences.
