Higher Education Roadshow

The Higher Education Roadshow offers a variety of inspiring talks and workshops to students in years 9-11, primarily in schools throughout Wales.

A collaborative project with Cardiff Metropolitan University, this project primarily targets areas where there are low progression rates to higher education and focuses on helping students to reach their potential, as well as demystifying the university experience through overcoming common misconceptions. The project:

  • delivers over 100 talks each year
  • reaches over 20,000 pupils
  • spends hundreds of hours working hard in schools and community groups delivering sessions
  • delivers regional weeks in North, Mid and West Wales, as well as travelling across Wales at a time that suits you

Our most popular talks include:

  • What is Higher Education?
  • Making the right choices for GCSES or sixth form/college
  • Study skills and revision
  • Student life
  • Financing and Budgeting University
  • Why Take Languages?
  • Building Resilience and Managing your Mental Health
  • An Introduction to Sports Degrees at University

You can book free campus tours at either Cardiff University or Cardiff Metropolitan University on which students will tour the site in a scavenger hunt style, with quizzes included and workshop/presentations to suit your students’ needs. To book, send an email using the contact information below.

Previously, we have hosted Fitness Testing, Introductions to Criminal Investigations and Psychology sessions during our experience days.
