Higher Education Insight Programme Residential - Birmingham

University event offered by University of Birmingham

Event Summary:

Higher Education Insight is a new residential for Year 12 students from England and Wales. It will provide them with the opportunity to live and learn at the University of Birmingham; one of the country’s leading universities.

Full Event Details:

This programme is only open for applications from students outside of the Greater West Midlands region. if you live within the Greater West Midlands region, please visit http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/aep

Young people will experience first-hand what it is like to be a student at a research-led university by staying for three days and two nights in the University halls of residence and attending academic sessions in an area they are interested in.

In the evenings they will be able to take part in social activities, just like a real student, and will also have the opportunity to take a tour of the UK’s Second City, Birmingham.

Throughout the residential there will be a team of current undergraduate student ambassadors working with the students. These ambassadors will be studying subjects within the academic streams.

After the residential, the participants will be paired with an ambassador who will be on hand to help and guide them through the HE process, including advice on UCAS applications and supporting their personal statements.

This programme will allow the students to develop a relationship with academics in their field of interest. They will be able to explore different topics within the academic stream and ultimately raise aspirations and have a better insight into the subject that they are interested in. The programme will instill confidence in the students, as they will be meeting people from all over the country. The weekly contact from a current undergraduate through e-mentoring will guide them in their choices regarding higher education, and ensure they reach their full potential and make the best possible choice.

Institution Profile:

Birmingham has been challenging and developing great minds for more than a century. Characterised by a tradition of innovation, research at the University has broken new ground, pushed forward the boundaries of knowledge and made an impact on people’s lives.

We continue this tradition today and have ambitions for a future that will embed our work and recognition of the Birmingham name on the international stage.

Universities are never complete. They develop as new challenges and opportunities occur. At Birmingham we innovate, we push the frontiers of understanding; we ask new research questions, we turn theory through experiment into practice – because that’s what great universities do.
