An insight into studying at university

BU Insight Days

If your students know what they want to do in the future, or even if they need some inspiration, our BU Insight Days are just that; a real insight into the study experience.

These events are perfect for students in Year 10 and above, and are open to whole classes, small groups of students or individuals.

Our Insight Days offer a range of activities between 10am and 2pm. Students will:

  • Experience Higher Education through a subject specific workshop facilitated by lecturers and current students
  • Discover what a university campus is like with an interactive campus tour
  • Develop their understanding and confidence through our activities and workshops about the application process, funding and budgeting, and adjusting to university life.

Subject-themed days                                                        

These events will be taking place between Tuesday 19 and Friday 22 June 2018.
