Event Summary:

This session introduces students to careers in the built environment industries, from designing buildings and choosing materials to costing and managing the materials and people needed to make those buildings happen in a sustainable and profitable way.

Full Event Details:

The morning element of the Explore Days will consist of fun, interactive and engaging life skills sessions, which are not subject-specific and aim to equip students with the skills needed to make a successful transition into the world of higher education. Students will rotate between a number of workshops, including a session with a stand-up comedian, an engaging music quiz to help learners decipher which is the right course for them and an overview of graduate employability. After the life skills sessions, students will then go to their chosen workshop.

Our new Explore series offers students in years 11, 12 and 13 a taste of degree level study on campus.
With many events offering the chance to experience several different workshops over the course of one day, this unique opportunity encourages students to broaden their understanding of the different courses available in each area.
