Our activities are suitable for young people aged 13-18 who have an interest in creative subjects and would like to develop their skills, knowledge and portfolio.
The aim of these activities is to provide an opportunity for young people to access free creative opportunities from a higher education institution to support them to find out more about creative subjects, pathways, and careers.
Some of our activities have specific eligibility criteria - this will be made clear for each individual opportunity, and we encourage you to make yourself familiar with this before applying.
