Why Study? Talks and Workshops
Event providers: The University of Manchester
Why Study Presentations and workshops provide information on popular disciplines available at university, which are not taught, or are less widely taught, in the 14-19 curriculum.
Presented by current PhD students, the sessions will demonstrate some of the skills developed by studying a degree in their subject area, explore the careers that graduates could progress into and raise awareness of additional opportunities available through degree courses in the field (eg study abroad or industry placement opportunities).
Specific progression information (eg any preferred or mandatory GCSE or A-level subjects) can be provided.
Talks can be delivered to any group size and last 30-45 minutes.
Workshops can be delivered to up to 40 pupils at a time and last for 30-60 minutes.
Why Study? sessions are available on the following topics:
- Biology and Society
