Headstart Cymru is a three-day residential course giving Year 12 students the opportunity to spend time at a University Engineering, Product Design or Electronics Department prior to making their UCAS application.
Students will take part in hands-on sessions to explore practical principles in engineering, as well as participating in group-based design, build and test projects.
Students stay in University accommodation, dine in the student union and take a tour of the campus with undergraduates. Evening activities are arranged to give students a real experience of university life.
The course costs £130 including all meals and accommodation. There are funded places available for students in West, North Wales and the Valleys, please see our website for more information.To book this activity, please contact:
