Who are these skills courses for? Year 11 / S4 students who have a passion for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). Let us INSPIRE you for 3 days at a leading UK university.
What will I be doing?
• You will be introduced to several branches of engineering or science to give you a flavour of what to expect at first year undergraduate level • Take part in hands-on STEM projects, lectures and workshops • Learn how to manage a project, develop research techniques, or write reports • Hear about university life from lecturers, admissions tutors and post-grad students • Meet engineers, researchers and professionals who'll explain their own achievements • Be confident and enthusiastic about your next level of study in STEM subjects
Attending one of these courses will mean that you will have priority when applying for a place on a Headstart Year 12 course the following year, where you'll find out all about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths ready for your UCAS application. Universities hold Headstart courses in high regard when considering students’ UCAS applications.
