Join us for this packed week to get a taste of University lectures including Civil Rights in the US, Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid's tale, Language and Society and more.
Our expert academics will explore topics in depth and you’ll have the opportunity to dig a bit deeper (or even test their knowledge!) in our interactive Q&A session. You can also attend talks to help you understand more about what studying History or English at University might be like. Hosted by our course leaders for History and English Literature, you can also ask our students about their degree, ARU or student life in general.
This week is aimed at those with or working towards level 3 qualifications but year 11s are also welcome.
