UC Campus Experiences

UC 4 Yourself collage 1

The UC 4 Yourself Experience Day is a fantastic opportunity available to students within the Aspire UC schools network.

The excursion gives students the chance to visit UC, participate in a range of activities and discover where uni may lead them. It is an enriching educational experience which familiarises students with a genuine higher education environment, helping to demystify university.
