Pre-16 Wellbeing Visit @ Manchester Metropolitan University – 01/05/2020

Event providers: Manchester Metropolitan University

Event Fallback Image

This visit day offers an introduction to higher education (HE) and information about specific support. Learners will have the chance to meet university students who have similar backgrounds, and can talk about their own experiences and share an insight into student life.

This event is for learners in school years 9-11, who may benefit from a campus visit centred around preparing for higher education (HE), including Student Support. In the past, we have welcomed a wide variety of learners, including those dealing with mental health challenges (e.g. stress, anxiety, eating disorders).

This is an event for targeted learners (dedicated to those who would benefit from a discrete, smaller university visit/additional support).

We aim to provide learners with an overview of HE options and the various pathways into HE. In addition, we will provide learners with useful ‘light touch’ information, advice and guidance regarding university life, managing their studies, and accessing Support and Wellbeing services.

The day will include:
• An introduction to HE, including light touch information on Student Support services
• A HE workshop, focusing on pathways. This will include light touch Student Finance and entry requirements information
• A guided campus tour
• A Time Management workshop
• A student guest speaker discussing their journey into HE (dependent on availability)
• A Student Ambassador Q&A panel
