Event providers: Greater Manchester Higher

Event Fallback Image

This half-day campus experience helps learners understand key aspects of life and study in Higher Education (HE), whilst linking their futures in HE to GCSE choices which will be a key consideration for all Year 9 students. The visit includes a comprehensive information, advice and guidance (IAG) session, a campus tour and workshop activity. 

 Learners participate in activities so they can fulfil their potential. They will: 

  • Identify key aspects of HE life and study 
  • Examine key education pathways from Level 1 to Level 6 
  • Demonstrate the impact of GCSE choices on future pathways 

The campus visit works well as a stand-alone information and guidance experience or incorporated into programmes of GCSE guidance for Year 9 students.
