Year 10 University Experience

This event has already taken place.


Our two day summer residential for Year 10 students in local authority care is a great opportunity to experience life at LJMU. Students will discover what life at university is like and hear first-hand about the support that is available to them.

Activities include:

  • an introduction into the higher education experience
  • campus tours and overnight stay in LJMU accommodation
  • hands-on taster sessions in one of LJMU’s many subject areas
  • opportunities to participate in social activities
  • a chance to speak to current care-experienced LJMU students

We’ve had many students attend past residentials not knowing anyone before they arrived and leaving with firm friends, but if students do feel more comfortable bringing a friend* along, that can be arranged. This event is free and includes transport to and from LJMU, all meals, refreshments and the materials needed throughout the event.
