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 Engineering and/ or Science through project work to give you a flavour of what to expect at University first year undergraduate level • Take part in hands-on STEM projects, lectures and workshops • Learn how to manage a project, develop research techniques, problem solving and write reports • Hear about university life from lecturers, admissions tutors and post-grad students • Meet engineers, scientists, researchers and professionals who'll explain their own achievements • Learn to 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 consideration 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.
