Event details

"I feel that the course has helped me to explore my horizons and has opened my mind to the real problems and issues that young people face." Surraya Mahmood, Youth Studies, BA (Hons)

We want students to love the courses they study and feel happy that they have made a fully informed decision about their future.

This day will give post 16 students an interactive taste of studying disciplines such as:

  • youth studies /youth in society
  • politics
  • psychology
  • sociology
  • criminology.

With engaging seminar style workshops based around the theme of happiness, students will debate and discuss topics in these areas and find out more about what courses in social sciences can offer.

"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." Confucius

The day will end with a seminar focussing on employability, providing students with information about how a degree in social sciences can help to develop the skills employers are looking for and widen career options.

Places are limited to 40 students - don't miss out!
