GREFest - Our festival of learning

Hello to our mature learners

Did you know that almost two thirds of our students are aged 21 or over?

As mature learners, you are warmly invited to take part in any of our GREFest sessions - in fact, we have created some workshops specially for you! Just scroll down this page for more details.

We know that you have busy lives so, if you're not able to join GREFest on the day, we will record each session and make the recordings available online to watch at a later time.


Get ready for university

This event will ensure you are equipped with the skills to succeed at university whilst also giving you the opportunity to meet and network with other students. The day will consist of a series of talks and workshops to kick start your university experience.

Our knowledgeable and experienced staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Whether you are a returning or new student, there is lots of support on hand to Power-Up your university experience.

Ask a student: student-to-student Question and Answer session

Join Academic Support Librarian, Ros Smith, as she talks to a panel of current and recently graduated students about their start at university.

When we speak to students about their start at uni, they often tell us that, although they feel happy and excited, they also feel anxious and nervous about what they will find. 

This is your chance to ask your own questions and hear the views of past students on how to prepare for your start at uni and what you should do to ensure you get a good start.

Registration for Ask a student: student-to-student Q&A coming soon!
