Throughout education, high grades are always pushed for. Of course, this makes sense, but this isn’t always possible for every student, for various reasons. Sometimes, grades cannot always be met and quite frankly, life happens and then comes disappointment.

This Discovery Workshop with Harper Adams University is an opportunity for your students to understand their different choices and the opportunities available if they are worried that they can’t achieve the grades required to get into a university course.

At Harper Adams University, students have access to a wide range of accessible opportunities from an Extended Degree in Applied Zoology to an Apprenticeship in Rural Chartered Surveying!

During the session, your students will find out more about:

  • Apprenticeships and combining employment with learning
  • Foundation degrees
  • Extended degree programmes


This event is open to Yr10+ within schools and colleges across the UK. The workshops will be delivered virtually, on Google Classrooms, with sign-in to the events made via the class teacher on behalf of a whole class or year group.
