Delivered by Nottingham Trent University's Outreach Team and our Outreach Ambassadors, the Year 6 university experience will give your pupils an immersive experience with a university.

The event is designed to support pupils in developing their knowledge of university, student life and enable them to visualise their transition to secondary school and beyond. The pupils will have plenty of opportunity to engage with university staff and students and ask questions. The experience will entail pupils exploring the university campus, either remotely or in-person, and undertaking interactive small group activities, facilitated by Outreach Ambassadors.


Slots are available Monday to Friday, between 14 June and 16 July, inclusive (subject to availability).


The on-campus experience runs 10am - 2pm (plus travel time).

The virtual experience is three hours, run flexibly to accommodate school break and lunchtimes.


Campus experiences are delivered from NTU Clifton or City Campus, depending on room availability on your preferred date. The experiences can be accessed in-person on campus, or virtually from your school.

For an in-person experience. you will ne to arrange your own transport to and from NTU City Campus, as well as appropriate teacher supervision. NTU will reimburse schools 50% towards travel costs on receipt of an invoice.

For a virtual experience, participating pupils will need to be in groups of up to 30 in a classroom, with up to a maximum of three classrooms taking part in any one experience day.
