Have you ever wondered why Psychology is considered a science? What it's like to be a paramedic? What it takes to organise a festival?
If you’re in year 11,12 or 13 take a look at ‘I Wonder Wednesdays’!
‘I Wonder Wednesdays’ is a series of online taster sessions designed to help you explore the subjects that interest you and discover what it would be like to study them at university. You’ll meet one of our lecturers and have the chance to ask any questions about the subject and about the University of Suffolk. They’re also a great way to demonstrate interest in your subject when writing your personal statement.
Each taster runs on a Wednesday and will last for around one hour. You can book to attend as many as you like and all you need to take part is access to a computer!
Please click the boxes below to view details of the sessions and to book your place.
We also run taster sessions for school groups at bespoke times. Please click here or email email@example.com for more details.
2 June at 13.00 - I wonder...what does it take to make Architecture?
If you're interested in: Architecture
Many people think that architecture is just about drawing or constructing buildings, but they are wrong – it is about so much more. We’ll take a journey to discover the wonders of architecture and how they can be a pathway to becoming better citizens. You will learn what architecture is from the perspective of an architect, how we can learn to make architecture and what it can do to improve our lives. We’ll explore exciting projects from around the world and come to understand key elements in architecture such as space, place and environment.
