We provide information, advice and guidance sessions for schools and colleges across the UK, and offer a range of activities that can be tailored to meet the needs of the audience. These sessions are designed to raise awareness of the benefits of university and inspire your students to think about their future. The sessions can be delivered both on campus and at your institution.

Whilst the past 18 months have caused disruption to students both academically and emotionally, we also recognise that the new school year may present further challenges, and so we have tailored our activities to ensure that the majority of our presentations and workshops can be delivered both online and in person. If you are interested in getting your school involved with WGU, please email recruitment@glyndwr.ac.uk.

We are also working closely with Open Learn to help you to be 'university ready'! You can find more resources to help with the transition to university here.

Activities can be offered on the themes of:

  • Why go to university?
  • What Wrexham Glyndŵr University has to offer.
  • Choosing the right course and university for you.
  • How to apply to university.
  • Writing an effective personal statement - how to sell yourself.
  • University interviews – how to prepare yourself.
  • From school to university – the student perspective.
  • Student finance – scholarships, bursaries and other funding sources.
  • Employment – fulfilling career aspirations.
  • Exam Stress.
  • Wellbeing – top tips, meditation, yoga, mindfulness, journaling, positive thinking.

“Our students have really benefited from our partnership with Wrexham Glyndŵr University over the past few years. Our school liaison team has been unfailingly friendly, professional and accommodating. We have not only had bespoke school visits covering all aspects of the university journey, but numerous visits to the site. ”

Our academics can also deliver subject specific talks for prospective students in fields such as business, art and design, psychology and engineering. We have student ambassadors studying a range of different subjects that can share first-hand experiences about university life, what it's really like and to answer any of your questions.

We understand that every school and their students are different, so we can tailor our service to meet your requirements. If there is anything specific you require, please just ask!

“We have been able to reach out for support with individual students who are in need of advice and guidance on their individual pathways. We recently received this message from a 2019 leaver who is studying Policing at Glyndŵr, following incredible support from them during the decision making process: "I am well and loving my course and the people, it was by far the best decision I have made." ”
