Excellence Hub - Yorkshire and Humber

The Excellence Hub for Yorkshire and Humber runs exciting events for young people to help enrich their experiences in school and college.

Events are open to students from across the UK who have been identified by their school or college as high achieving. Please note that there are additional eligibility criteria and a set application process for applying for events.

The Excellence Hub is a regional collaboration between the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York.


We're busy planning an exciting programme of activities and subject taster activity for the new academic year. We will be adding new events to this page throughout the year.
