The University of Bolton is offering a range of 'taster sessions' for year 12 students aimed at giving a flavour of the type of lecture available at university.

These events are generally offered free of charge although schools/colleges are expected to cover travel and lunch arrangements. There may also be a charge to cover the cost of materials on certain enrichment sessions. 

The activities listed in this section are by no means exhaustive and are designed to illustrate the sort of short lecture we are able to provide.

If your school/college is interested in any of the sessions or in talking about alternative options then please contact the Schools and Colleges Liaison Team on 01204 903807 or email

Taster sessions are available in the following subject areas:

If the subject you are interested in is not listed, please get in touch as we are always interested in how we can perfect our range of enrichment and support on offer to schools and colleges. 

We can also amend any existing enrichment programme to fit in with a current theme or topic.
