You can sign up here for UP for Uni Summer 2017 (you can apply for as many as you wish to attend).


UP for Uni events are free and for secondary school age participants. They usually last for a day (or part of a day) and take place out of school time e.g. during school holidays, on a weekend or after school. Our events are normally held at the University of Portsmouth or nearby locations, although we sometimes organise trips further afield and occasionally run other special projects. Parents or carers do not usually participate in events.

When you sign up to an event, a consent form will be emailed to your parents. Please ask them to complete it as soon as possible so that we can confirm your place. Confirmation of your place and all the details are usually sent out at least a week before each event.

We try to include as many participants as possible but sometimes space and numbers are limited. If an event is oversubscribed we will give priority to older participants (as younger ones have a greater chance of attending future workshops), those who attend a non fee-paying school in Portsmouth, or who live in an area with low participation in higher education*.

If you have any questions, please get in touch through our contact page, email upforuni@port.ac.uk or call 023 9284 6214.

*You can use this tool to check higher education participation in your area.

Please note: We also work with local teachers and offer lots of opportunities for schools and colleges to visit the University of Portsmouth. If you would like more information, please go to: http://www.port.ac.uk/recruitment-and-outreach/

    Hi Emma, thanks for your comment! The Cheer Off is run by our colleagues in UP for Sport and I’m sure they’ll be chuffed to hear that. They do some great stuff and you can find out more information about them here: http://www.upforsport.co.uk/
