Registration information for teachers

Discover Days offer Year 12 students a unique chance to experience courses that they are interested in, prior to making final choices about their higher education.

These events are open to learners of all backgrounds from any area. In order that they are of maximum value, places on each day are limited.

Please note that Discover Days are primarily designed for potential applicants who have not yet made decisions regarding their UCAS choices, so priority will be given to Year 12 students. These events are aimed at students in Year 12 or an equivalent level of study and are not appropriate for younger pupils.

Learners should register for the days independently using the individual booking forms for each event.

Book your place

Our 2020/21 events will not be taking place.

Sign up to hear when the next events are announced and about any other relevant subject specific sessions and resources that are available. 

As a teacher you may have previously registered groups of students to attend the Discover Days. We've changed this aspect of the registration process and no longer accept group bookings. This is intended to promote autonomous engagement with the events by pupils and to cement their commitment to attending. 

If you are a teacher interested in attending a Discover Day please email Please note that registering for a ‘teacher place’ at a Discover Day will only reserve a place for you to attend. Your students must register via the booking form for the relevant Discover Day.
