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 the STEM@Leeds Team at STEM@leeds.ac.uk or 0113 343 7495.
Our work focuses on showcasing the practical elements and applications of STEM at university, and as a result we are not usually able to attend careers fairs. You can submit a request via STEM@leeds.ac.uk and we will forward it to relevant colleagues across the University. Please provide as much information on the format of event and what support you need from the university on this form.
We also recommend contacting STEM Ambassadors who may be more able to cater to these requests.
You can 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. We recommend getting in touch with STEM Ambassadors who provide lots of initiatives for primary schools. Please also see these resources which we can offer on loan to your school.
The vast 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.
The University of Leeds has a fantastic Find An Expert search engine that will help you find someone to contact.
Please visit our Summer Schools web page for information.
