Primary outreach

We're offering a range of activities for Years 5 and 6 to get involved in to ensure that our younger learners can continue to learn about higher education and student life despite the restrictions.

Children's University of Manchester

The Children’s University of Manchester is our dedicated Key Stage 2 interactive online learning tool.

The Student Life module is an introduction to life at university and pupils can find out what going to university involves.

Other subject areas include:

Please note: some of the original website is no longer supported by browsers but we're currently looking into ways to replicate the resources and will update when we can.

Support with in-school events

Our students are on hand to play a part in your school events, sharing their journey to, and through, university. Our students make great role models and some will have previous experience of working with Year 5 and 6.

You can make a request for help with careers fairs, aspirations weeks, enterprise days, competition judging and any other in-school events you may be holding for Years 5 and 6. 

Request student help

Access our online subject presentations

The students we've selected to work with our primary schools are now studying for a PhD so they have gained a lot of knowledge in many different subject areas. If your Year 5 and 6 classes could benefit from a subject talk, take a look at our classroom activities to see what areas we cover.

These presentations can be accessed at any time and are being continually added to, but if you have a more specific request, please email alison.gregory@manchester.ac.uk and we'll do our best to help.
