Arts Outreach updates

Our Arts Outreach team will be offering daily Zoom drop-in sessions for students throughout Level 4 and into Level 3. While we are part of the Arts Faculty, we are happy to help with any bigger questions around applications, scholarships, etc. (or at least we can point you in the right direction for who else to ask!).

Monday-Friday, 11.30am-12.30am. Student drop ins.

Tuesdays and Thursdays, 7-8pm. Student and parent drop ins.

We know some students prefer to use instant messenger, so prospective students or parents can also contact the Arts Outreach team through our Facebook Business page, here.

Arts Outreach are also happy to run online Young Scholars presentations for any schools that would like them. For any students interested in Psychology Young Scholars, this comes under Arts and are some of the most popular courses. There are two presentations planned for the 2 November (in person TBC) and 4 November (online) for students and parents.
