Year 12 Bitesize Uni

A chance for Year 12 students to try out university life by spending a bite-sized four nights and three days at Newcastle University.

Date/Time: 16-19 July 2019

Venue: Newcastle University campus

Bitesize Uni (BSU) provides Year 12 students with the information and opportunities to help them make an informed decision about whether or not they want to go to university. It is completely free to attend as everything is paid for by the University.

The event includes:

  • workshops and lectures in subjects of their choice to help students choose the subject(s) they would like to study
  • higher education information sessions to develop students' personal skills that will help them in their university career
  • social activities to encourage students to make lots of new friends and have loads of fun too!
