For schools and colleges

HE Workshops

Interactive workshops to support students with their preparations for their journey into higher education or future studies

Our experienced Outreach & Educational Partnerships staff and Student Ambassadors can visit our targeted schools and colleges and deliver a range of interactive workshops to students in Years 12 and 13, FE Year 1 and 2, and also to their parents/guardians too.

Our targeted schools and colleges are also able to visit the University of Greenwich and attend these workshops as part of our HE Days.

We also have pre-recorded video versions of our HE Workshops, along with PDF versions of these presentations available for you and your students to download and access. Further information on how to access these can be found on our resources page.

Our workshops normally last an hour including time for question and answer and can be tailored to your requirements.
