We receive a variety of enquiries about what the STEM@Leeds Outreach Team offer for schools. Please find a list of frequently asked questions and their answers listed below.
If your question is not listed below, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help you.
- Can you come to our school’s career fair?
- Where can I find information about the courses on offer at the University?
- Do you offer events and activities for primary schools?
- Do you charge for events?
- Do you offer work experience?
- Where can I find information about STEM summer schools at the University?
- Who can I contact for information about a specific topic?
Our work focuses on showcasing the practical side of STEM at University and as a result we do not often get chance to agree to attend careers fairs. You can submit a request via our outreach enquiry form and we will forward to relevant colleagues across the University – it therefore helps to provide as much information on the kind of event being run and what is being looked for, on this form.
We also recommend contacting STEM Ambassadors who may be more able to cater to these requests.
Why not start with our simplified Course Directory to get an idea of what STEM courses are available that may suit your interests? Next, find detailed and up-to-date information on the University’s Course Finder to further your understanding.
We have a limited capacity to work with primary schools. The majority of our work with primary schools is delivered during the Leeds Festival of Science. We recommend getting in touch with STEM Ambassadors who provide lots of initiatives for primary schools.
The majority of our outreach events are free of charge to attend, with the exception of some of our summer schools. If there is a charge it will be clearly stated before you book.
We’re unable to coordinate work experience placements for pupils at the University with the exception of the School of Physics and Astronomy, who offer a dedicated Work Experience scheme which accepts applications from Year 12 students studying physics and maths at A-level.
Please visit our Summer Schools webpage for information.
The University of Leeds has a fantastic Find An Expert search engine that will help you find someone to contact.
