Want to find out more about what it's like to study at university?
Devon Collaborative Outreach Network Taster Days offer Looked After Young People in Years 7-13 the opportunity to gain a valuable insight into university life.
Our Taster Days usually involve:
- A campus tour of Plymouth University, where pupils will have the opportunity to meet current students.
- Fun, interactive activities across different subject areas to demonstrate what university study is like.
- Free lunch with staff and student ambassadors.
There is also the possibility of visiting other institutions within the network such as the University of St. Mark and St. John and Plymouth College of Arts, depending on availability. We can cater for single or mixed year groups.
These events can be adapted to meet the specific requirements of your pupils. For example, for older students, we can organise sessions with the Care Leavers Service, providing information about the support offered to Care Leavers at Plymouth University.
