If you're not involved in a specific programme with us, there are still plenty of ways for your pupils to find out more about York and explore campus. This includes group visits, campus tours and our flagship undergraduate Open Days.
During 2020/21, our Access and Outreach programmes and Student Recruitment activity will be delivered virtually with some face-to-face events. We will be guided by government guidelines and University policy. We will work directly with programme participants and our school and college partners to keep you informed of progress.
Arrange a group visit
We can help you arrange a group visit to the University. These visits offer your pupils an exciting insight into university and student life, as well as informative sessions about their educational choices.
Our activities for pupils in Years 8 and 9 provide an introduction to higher education, with interactive sessions such as quizzes, competitions and designing posters. The sessions are designed to teach pupils about the academic and social sides of university. We also provide a student-led tour of our lively campus and the chance for your pupils to ask questions about student life.
For pupils in Years 10 and 11 we provide a more in-depth introduction to higher education with more emphasis on making choices. Pupils learn about student finance and budgeting through quizzes and competitions, working in teams led by current York students.

We tend to offer two-hour visits for pupils in Years 12 and 13. They usually start with an introductory talk about York, followed by a talk about student life and then a campus tour with some of our current students. If you'd like to discuss a longer visit we'd be happy to discuss your requirements.

Subject conferences give students the chance to explore a particular subject in depth and to get a taste of what it is like to study at York. Your pupils will get to sample academic life and hear about possible future careers.
Academic skills and EPQ conferences
We offer a range of academic skills workshops for Year 12 students and also hold EPQ conferences to help support students working towards this qualification.
