  • Presentations to students and/or parents about the RAU
  • Presentations and workshops to students and/or parents about higher education, with topics such as UCAS applications, personal statement writing, choosing a university/course, student finance and student life

UCAS exhibitions

The RAU Outreach Team attend many of the UCAS exhibitions located across the UK every year. These events provide an ideal opportunity for you to meet us and ask plenty of questions about studying at the University. For more information about these exhibitions please visit the UCAS website.

Summer schools

Year 10 Summer School is a free, fun summer residential course for year 10 students in local state schools.  Students get first-hand experience of what it’s like to be a student by living in halls of residence, attending academic sessions, meeting other students and taking part in social activities. Further information about the 2019 programme and booking form can be found here.

Teachers and advisers

We host an annual Teacher and Adviser Conference every summer. This event brings together teachers and advisers from across the UK to raise awareness of the exciting variety of progression and career opportunities in the land-based sector, and what is currently available at the smaller, specialist institutions. Previous years topics have included: how best to support students to access, progress and succeed at further education and higher education, sessions on student finance, transition to university, student enterprise and land-based graduate careers.Further information about the 2019 programme will be provided in Spring 2019.

We are a proud partner of the GROWS Network, a collaboration of universities, colleges and schools across Gloucestershire. GROWS works with young people in the region, raising their awareness of higher education and pathways towards it.  Visit the GROWS website for further information.
