Workshops for schools and colleges
We have a number of different workshops, some which can be brought to your school and some which are run on our campus. Please check workshop availablility with our Student Recruitment Officer for your region.
At your school
Build your own University
This can be done on our campus or at your school as part of your 6th year induction session. This unique workshop gets students working in groups to design their own university. As a group they need to make decisions and react to surprise challenges throughout. The workshop will show students how different university experiences can be and the wealth of options that are out there. It will also help them to think what they might be interested in doing after school.
Living It Up
This session explores different aspects of student life including studying, support and the Students' Union. There are interactive games throughout.
Life Sized Board Game
An interactive session where school students are players in their own board game. The session engages students with higher education and the university experience. It can be adapted to different ages and group sizes. The game can be brought to your school but please note that the game needs to be set up in a large hall.
On the University of Stirling campus
This workshop takes place on the University of Stirling campus. It can be adapted for age and group size. The workshop incorporates a campus tour with treasure hunt alongside.
