Save event

School and college students have an opportunity to explore higher education and careers within the health and social care sectors through their engagement with hands-on, interactive activities.

Students will have the opportunity to explore the fields of Medicine, Dentistry, Biomedical Science, Nursing, Midwifery, Psychology, Social Work and Allied Health Professions (Dietetics, Occupational Therapy, Optometry, Paramedic Practitioner, Physiotherapy, Podiatry, and Sport Therapy and Rehabilitation). Exhibitors will use interactive activities to inspire students and spark conversations about their profession.

Activities will be led by academic staff, current undergraduate students, healthcare researchers and health and social care professionals, providing students with a unique opportunity to find out more about life, careers and research within the health and social care sectors.

We will be welcoming students who are aspiring health professionals from years 10-13, as well as those returning to study. Please note, this event will be for pre-booked school/college groups who are accompanied by their teachers. 

Booking for the schools and colleges sessions should be made via our online booking form. For those not wishing to book online, please email for a copy of the booking form:
