Free encounters with universities - Gatsby Benchmark 7

University of the West of England (UWE Bristol)

UWE Bristol organises a number of exciting activities, events and awards designed to help raise students' aspirations, attainment and awareness of Higher Education. Whether your students are exploring their options for after school or college, considering university study or just want to find out more about a subject, we're here to help. 

Open days

An Open Day is your opportunity to explore our university and get a real feel for what it’s like to study here. Everyone’s needs are different, so we’re hosting both On Campus and Virtual Open Days for you to choose from. So whether you want to explore our campuses in person, or it works better for you to do things digitally, we have the perfect day planned for you.

Click here for everything you need from these events from course talks with our lecturers, helpful information from key University services, 360° tours of our facilities and accommodation and much more. Discover why UWE Bristol isn’t just another university.

Workshops and presentations

We offer a range of informative and interactive talks and workshops to help students explore Higher Education and its benefits, learn about student life and how to make an informed and successful application to HE. These sessions are led by UWE Bristol staff and student ambassadors and can be tailored to fit your requirements (including delivery online or onsite in school or college, depending on preferred format). 

For full details of our offer, please see here.

Campus visits and taster days

We provide a number of exciting opportunities for your Key Stage 4 and 5 students to visit us on our Frenchay campus and learn more about Higher Education and life at university. These visits can be tailored to ensure they meet your needs and desired student learning outcomes. Typically, they can include the opportunity to meet current students, a tour of the campus and a selection of university-related and subject specific workshops. 

For further information, please see here.

Exhibitions and fairs

We attend many Higher Education and careers fairs organised by schools and colleges throughout the academic year. These are a great opportunity for your students to talk online or face-to-face with UWE Bristol students, meet university staff and have any specific questions answered. Students can also find out more about the courses we offer and student experience at UWE Bristol.

If you would like us to attend a careers or Higher Education event either virtually or at your school or college please visit here to register your interest. Attendance is subject to the availability of staff, so please contact us as early as possible to book.
