NUA is proud of its relationship with schools and colleges and we know this is how we attract talented, creative students from across the UK and internationally.
We very much see our role as working with schools to champion and nurture creativity.
If you would like to bring a class for a look around the campus please do not hesitate to get in touch. We regularly organise school/college tours which can be tailored to meet your requirements. With a bit of notice we can usually arrange for a subject specific talk or a general overview of degree opportunities at NUA.
Our Schools and Outreach Officer and team of Student Ambassadors are able to come to your premises to deliver workshops, presentations and attend careers/parents evenings. We prioritise sixth form students but can with notice organise a talk for GCSE pupils. Our standard sessions are:
Every year NUA welcomes teachers, heads of sixth form and careers advisors from across the UK to find out more about supporting students to progress to HE. This day includes advice on portfolio preparation, funding and the application process. It is also a chance to meet Course Leaders and receive practical training. To reserve your place email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Taster days provide a fantastic opportunity for school pupils to gain inspiration and experience within a higher education setting. With access to state-of-the-art facilities these hands-on, practical and FREE workshops enable students to find out more about creative degrees. Get in touch to find out more about upcoming Taster Days.
The best way to experience what NUA has to offer is to see for yourself at one of our open days for undergraduate or postgraduate courses.
