  • Get a feel for the University campus and facilities;
  • Participate in study skills and library workshops;
  • Learn about the support offered by the University;
  • Hear from Alumni and current undergraduates about their experiences;
  • Meet other Access to HE, BTEC and mature students.

This programme is completely free, and open to anyone over the age of 18 (in August 2018) and considering their options for study at University – whether you have already applied, or are considering doing so in the future.
