The second Uni Inspiration Day of the academic year is fast approaching, with preparations underway to welcome schools across the South-East to Cardiff University on the 26th of March. Uni Inspiration Day is an event organised by the Higher Education Roadshow, run jointly by Cardiff University and Cardiff Metropolitan University, with the aim of raising the aspirations of Year 11 pupils and promoting higher education.
Pupils will have the opportunity to attend three workshops to give them a taste of the subject at university level. This March, we are pleased to be offering three new workshops, including Music, Computer Science, and Tourism, Hospitality and Events Management. A subject fair will also be held at the beginning of the day, allowing pupils to chat to current students about their studies and university life. Accompanying teachers and adults can also access information and advice from both universities’ School Liaison Officers on how to help their pupils prepare for the transition to higher education. We are anticipating 250 pupils will attend the upcoming event.
