  • Master Classes and Technique Sessions - focus on a specific area, technique or skill within a subject, allowing students the chance to see 'close-up' some of the techniques used in that subject areas.
  • Conferences and Debates - designed to challenge the way students think about real world issues and devlopments in technology and to encourage independent learning and development of transferable skills, such as evidence analysis, research and communication skills.

*Please note: We try to accommodate as wide a range of schools and colleges as possible in our outreach provision. However, in some cases, priority will be given to widening participation target schools and young people with little or no experience of Higher Education in their family. Activities will be flagged accordingly.
