These FREE student-led activities are facilitated by the partnership between the
UEA Student’s Union and UEA Outreach.


Our aim is to provide activities to help young people develop their knowledge, break down barriers, improve confidence by providing them with relatable role models, our students.

What better way to do this than by hearing from UEA students themselves?

 

What are student-led activities?

These activities can range from programmes to one-off workshops. We work with UEA clubs and societies, that offer a range of opportunities (check them out below!) Some of these activities can support you in PSHE and citizenship curriculums, but the best part is, your pupils will be hearing from the authentic voices of the students themselves.

Why should you sign up?

  • A great opportunity for your students to get access to relatable role models, that can share their authentic experiences to inspire your pupils
  • Break down those barriers of higher education
  • Build your pupils’ knowledge and skills in a variety of topics
  • Help your pupils realise their own potential
  • Fill your form/tutor or PSHE time with meaningful experiences
