Tailor a visit to the University for you and your students! Your class can choose to attend exciting lectures from the experts, perform experiments in our high-tech laboratories or go on a tour of the facilities. This is a wonderful way to familiarise your students with the university experience. Students are also able to gain an insight into the life of a university student by visiting student facilities and learning about the student services available. We will endeavour to cater to groups of all sizes.
Let us know what your interests are, and we will organise an informative excursion for you.
