About the Programme

Our goal is to help schools inspire the scientists, artists and teachers of tomorrow as well as provide teachers with the hook that will spark their pupils’ curiosity. We want to give pupils the confidence to explore new subjects and discuss their ideas. We offer in-school modules and campus visits led by our friendly Warwick students.

SIGN UP IS NOW CLOSED for the Warwick Bright Stars programme modules and campus days.

You can still request a school talk, a lesson in a box or teacher CPD below.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Our friendly Arts Centre trail leaders will take your pupils on a journey through our university to explore our campus and our Sculpture Trail. Your pupils can ask any questions they have about university to our students ambassadors and get to hear what life as a student is like at Warwick. Our Academics have also prepared fun sessions for them to spark their imagination and inspire them to become the artists and scientists of tomorrow.
