University Event


Higher Education Awareness Day (HEAD)

University event offered by Buckinghamshire New University

Event Summary:

HEADs enable first year FE students and those in Year 12 to discover what it would be like to study a specific subject at university. They offer taster sessions, student finance information, a personal statement workshop and a chance to quiz current students about their experiences of university life.

Full Event Details:

These events give learners the chance to explore some of the subjects they may be considering studying at university through taster sessions and discussion. This could be a subject they are already studying or a completely new subject choice.

We will cover areas such as entry requirements, course content (module, mode of study, assessment, placements etc) and career opportunities. The taster sessions will be delivered by academics involved with the course, so the day provides the perfect opportunity to find out firsthand what the degree course would be like.

There will be time to find out more about fees and finance as well as a personal statement workshop to optimise their approach to this part of the UCAS application. The day will give an insight into what it is like to be a student at Bucks New University, including a Q&A session with current students.

For this HEAD, students can find out more about Art and Design, Performing Arts and Dance courses.

As part of this event, lunch is included free of charge for all in attendance. In some instances we may be able to contribute towards travel costs but please contact us to check if this is applicable.

Spaces are limited, so you should book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions about this event.

Institution Profile:

Schools & Colleges Outreach

Our Schools and Colleges Outreach team is here to help learners, parents and carers understand what’s involved with university study. We run events, talks, campus visits and workshops focusing on raising awareness, aspirations and attainment.

Our activities can be tailored, are designed to be flexible, and we offer a choice of locations to work around your needs. By working together with schools and colleges, we can help give learners the information and inspiration to make informed choices about their future.

Creating an academic link
If you’d like to link up with one of our academic departments, we’d be very happy to hear from you. Please contact us to explore ways that we can help your learners’ progress.

Widening participation
We are committed to widening participation. We firmly believe that everyone who has the potential to benefit from higher education should get the opportunity to study.

We’re here to support bright, talented young people to succeed at school and college, whatever their social or financial background. We can help them think realistically about how university could boost their prospects.

We are proud of our track record for raising people’s aspirations and helping them get results and move towards their goals. We have a wide experience of helping learners in groups that are normally under-represented in higher education.

Our work is targeted to involve students from lower income families, postcodes where fewer people go on to university, young people in care and disabled students.
