Higher education awareness days

Higher Education Awareness Days at Manchester are for Year 6 pupils from targeted schools, whom we invite onto our campus along with their teachers, in order to meet students and find out more about university and student life.

Up to 30 pupils from your school can visit at any one time.

Pupils participate in three sessions that will give them a real awareness of campus life.
