Bangor University Residential Taster Event

16 April 2019

During the Easter break, 12 young carers attended a residential taster event at Bangor University in North Wales.

The event gives young carers the opportunity to experience aspects of University life, including a 2 night stay in halls of residence.

Taster lectures included Engineering, Psychology, Medical Research, Sports Science, Drama and Creative Industries.


This was a fantastic experience for all involved which will really help to inform their decisions about their higher education choices.

The food & evening entertainment were great too!


Comments from those who attended included:


“At Bangor University everyone is friendly & this gave me confidence to be myself & the confidence to go to University if I wanted to. This experience was really enjoyable & everyone should come & see what University is like.”


“Good atmosphere & good because we now all know that we can come & not be worried about not fitting in.”


“I enjoyed my time thoroughly & found the experience beneficial as I was able to stay in the accommodation. I feel like I am more confident with moving away from home for Uni.”


“I really enjoyed my time away, building friendships & confidence by socialising, singing & dancing. I have a better understanding of University.”
