University Experience Days

At various times throughout the year, local universities offer a range of educational activities.

Our Experience Days for 2017 are taking place on 9th March for Year 9 and 10 Children in Care at Loughborough University, and 30th March for Year 5 and 6 Children in Care at University of Leicester.

This year we are trialling a short residential for years 8 and 9 at Leicester University in June which will be about the importance of studying languages at GCSE and how this will help with jobs and further / higher education options for young people.

There's also the University Experience Summer School which is a two day activity for those aged 16-25 who want to experience university subjects at three local universities and sample the social side of university life. This takes place on 8th and 9th July at the University of Leicester, Loughborough University and De Montfort University.

Information on all 3 events can be found on the attached flyer.

The January 2015 issue of "Uni-Care Connect" has a couple of articles on the University Experience events that took place in 2014. These articles will give you an idea of what you may get to experience on the day. You can find a copy attached below.
