An immersive summer school experience for Year 10s

Explore university, before university

UniFest is a summer School that takes place at 6 universities across the West Midlands (Including University College Birmingham). UniFest gives you the chance to spend time exploring university life, meeting students and staff, making friends and immersing yourself in an action-packed Higher education experience.

Who is UniFest for?

UniFest is for students in Year 10 at state-funded secondary schools in the West Midlands who are from backgrounds and communities that are less likely to be considering university as an option. To apply for a place, you will need the support of your school and the consent of your parents or carers, and you should be able to answer “Yes” to at least one of the following:

  • My parents or carers did not go to university
  • I receive Free School Meals
  • I have a disability or learning difficulty
  • I am in the care of my local authority
  • I am a young carer
  • I live in an area where not many young people go to university
