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 group to visit our creative campus, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Our campus tours are tailored to meet your requirements. We would be happy to arrange for subject specific talks, an introduction to the opportunities at NUA and presentations on pursuing a creative career. Speak to someone from our Outreach Team to discuss further.
Our Outreach Team are able to come to your campus to deliver workshops, presentations and attend progression events. We prioritise Level 3 applicants but can, with notice, work with younger groups if availability allows. Our Outreach programme includes:
Every year NUA welcomes teachers, heads of sixth form and careers advisors from across the UK and EU 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 email@example.com.
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 workshops enable students to find out more about creative degrees. Get in touch to find out more about upcoming Taster Days.
