Can you survive three days and two nights as a student at university?

This Year 10 residential event will give you a taste of what student life is really like as you spend your time on campus and stay in university accommodation. The programme will include a host of fun activities, subject tasters and social events allowing you to meet current undergraduate students and learn more about studying at university.

USG will help you to make an informed decision about whether or not you want to go to university and find out more about the range of subjects available- it's nothing like school! This event is completely free to attend as everything is paid for by the university.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Decision making
  • HE awareness
  • Independence
  • Raising aspirations
  • Subject specific knowledge
