Inspiring Minds: Engineering

What is Inspiring Minds?

Our Inspiring Minds taster days are an excellent opportunity for Year 12 students to learn more about the options available to them at university. The events aim to enhance current studies and get students thinking about their subjects from a new perspective through a range of undergraduate level taster sessions delivered by our academic staff and students.

Students can also learn more about university applications and student life through informative sessions covering topics such as Personal Statements and Student Finance, as well as the opportunity to take a tour of our stunning single-site campus with our current students.

What is more, these events look great on a student's personal statement, helping them to stand out as part of the university application process.

The events are free of charge (excluding the cost of travel to campus) and lunch is provided.

Inspiring Minds: Engineering

Wednesday 26th June 2019

This event was for those students interested in studying engineering at university. Students were able to attend their choice of talks and workshops from across the university's engineering disciplines, receive university application guidance and take a tour of our outstanding campus and facilities.

Some of the comments received include:

"The event has opened my eyes to my options for the future"

"I'm now more likely to choose a masters degree. It has helped me narrow down my decision of which engineering degree to do"

"All talks were well organised, interesting and informative"

Please see below for the event timetable, which outlines the sessions that are typically avaialble for students.

Our next Inspiring Minds event for Year 12 students interested in engineering will take place in the 2019-20 academic year. To register your interest, please click below.
