Wise Up

Event providers: The University of Manchester

Ever wondered what it’s like to be a student in one of the UK’s coolest cities? Do you want to experience the buzz of student life, try out living in student accommodation, or just get to know university a bit more?

Our Wise Up…Do Something Different summer school will do just that! You’ll learn some new skills to help you in your studies, take part in a campaign challenge with our Students’ Union, and learn about pathways into HE and a range of different careers.

Interspersed with a scavenger hunt, quizzes and games, plus evening social activities in our Halls of Residence, you’ll get the full experience of what it’s really like to be a university student.

Come along to make friends for life, have fun, and learn valuable information that’ll help you navigate, access and succeed in higher education.
