UWE Bristol subject talks

Our UWE Bristol subject specialists can offer talks for students in Year 12 or 13 on degree-level study or a specific subject. Sessions provide valuable insights into what it is like to study a particular subject, as well as useful advice to help students get into these courses in the future. Example subject areas include Art and Design, Geography, Business, Law, Politics, Philosophy, English, Nursing and Midwifery.

Student life talks with UWE Bristol Student Ambassadors

Our UWE Bristol Student Ambassadors offer workshops and talks about student and university life, how to make the most of the Higher Education experience and answer any questions from the audience. These sessions are available for groups of either Key Stage 4 or Year 12/13 students. Student Ambassador workshops and talks must be supervised by a DBS-checked member of school or college staff.
