University Unlocked - Half Term Virtual Experience Days

Join our team and current students as we virtually invite you to the University of Surrey. Each day of interactive virtual sessions will encourage your child to take part in higher education activities filled with hands-on Subject Tasters, Society Tasters & Wellbeing Sessions. We will also provide a JustEat (or similar) voucher to join us for a virtual social lunch! You will also receive a pack of daily academic and employability skill challenges to complete as a family, and a £10 Tesco voucher to support with meal provision during half-term week.

Each day is for young people in receipt of Free School Meals and tailored to students from Year 7 to Year 13! We can also support with digital devices and connectivity to make sure everyone who wants to can access University Unlocked.
