The College of Law, Humanities and Social Sciences offer a wide range of outreach activities which can be delivered at your school, college or one of our campuses.

Our taster sessions all contain material and activities from our degree programmes, allowing your students to experience university style learning and discover more about the topics they may cover.

Our Outreach Assistants

Our outreach assistants are current, undergraduate students within our college who have undergone full training in working with young people and a full Disclosure and Barring Service check. They deliver informative and interactive sessions and are always happy to talk about their own experiences, giving your students a real taste of what it is really like to go to university.

Outreach - Law and Criminology

There are a wide range of activities to choose from for Law and Criminology, all of which have been designed to challenge and inspire your students. Students can take part in mock murder trials in our state of the art law courts, negotiate settlements between countries at war or learn about criminal profiling or crime scene investigation to name just a few.

Outreach - English

We run English sessions on topics such as War Poetry, John Clare and the Sonnet, the Struggle for Identity and the Victorian Realist Novel. These taster sessions can be adapted to link to novels which form part of your curriculum and are delivered by our academics and supported by an outreach assistant.

Outreach - History

For students with an interest in History there are a number of sessions available which can give them an insight into studying the subject at degree level. Students can attend a History Challenge Day at the university or we can run sessions around social politics, World War One or Medicine at your school or college. All of the sessions are interactive and include information about the History degree and graduate careers.
