It has evolved from a Biological and Medicine engagement platform through a week-long Science Engineering and Technology (SET) Festival, to its current format as a year-round engagement provider in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in its broadest sense.

Higher Education Roadshow

KS4

The Higher Education Roadshow is a joint venture between Cardiff University and Cardiff Metropolitan University (UWIC), which aims to engage pupils and encourage them to continue in education. The HE roadshow team offer free year-group interactive assemblies for years 9, 10 and 11 across Wales. A number of sessions are available, including study skills, introduction to university, preparing for 6th form / college and student life. The assemblies provide an introduction to higher education and help to encourage your pupils to work hard and think about their future. For some pupils, university can be a daunting prospect. We aim to demystify the university experience through overcoming common misconceptions about higher education and illustrating the benefits of life at university. Further resources and information on how to book are available on the HE Roadshow website: www.highereducationroadshow.co.uk
