Full Event Details:

UCB offers ‘Have a Go’ opportunities aimed at Year 10 and 11 students.

Our ‘Have a Go’ sessions offer you and your students an exciting opportunity to learn more about our subject areas, experience UCB life on campus and be inspired to think about careers and further study in these sectors.

These sessions give your students a hands-on experience of the area from our team. All of the sessions are free of charge, include free parking and take place at UCB on various dates throughout the year from October to June.

Students can try their skills and practice some techniques in the hair, beauty and make-up industry. On this ‘Have a Go’ your students will work in one of UCB’s training salons and experience a session, similar to what you can expect on a practical session on our college courses. Working on hair blocks to create plaiting and twisting hair styles, learning correct manicure techniques and creating gruesome gory media make-up looks. Ultimately they can discover their passion and learn how to turn that into an exciting career. Sessions last two to three hours and are available alternate Fridays.
