Schools and Colleges 


We offer a range of activities for most* schools and colleges within an hour’s commute of the University. Schools within this area that meet certain socio-economic criteria are able to choose from sessions listed on our activity menus. 

Activities are free and available to young people in year 7 up to year 13 and beyond.  IF you would like to check whether your school is eligible for these opportunities and/or discuss your requirements please contact us on 0115 951 5075 or at

We also run a primary schools engagement programme.

Individual Students

Other activities, such as masterclasses (via our Ambition Nottingham programme) and summer schools are open to students attending as individuals rather than as part of a school/college group. These activities may have differing qualifying criteria – please see the appropriate webpages.

*Our Schools and College Liaison Team are responsible for activities with independent and selective grammar schools
