Our Primary Explorers Days will give pupils the chance to learn more about the University and explore university courses and careers. Pupils will learn more about what a university is, what courses they can study, and take part in a treasure hunt campus tour. Pupils will also have the opportunity to ask questions to our current students to find out what it's really like to study and live at university. 

Please note these events get booked up quickly and places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. To allow as many schools as possible to participate, we ask that you book a space for 30 pupils originally. If we have additional space, we may allow you to bring more pupils to the event. If you have any questions about the event, please email wateam@derby.ac.uk.

Five students throwing their graduation caps in the air.

As many of the children at our school come from deprived and low socio-economic backgrounds, it was really valuable to see that University is something which they can ALL aspire to do one day.
