Discover is a FREE award winning short course, designed to inspire adults who haven’t been to university to progress with their learning. The upcoming course is delivered on Wednesday between 10am and 1pm. It will focus on themes that link into the subjects offered by the Department for Lifelong Learning.

Delivered in partnership with Museums Sheffield and Sheffield Association for the Voluntary Teaching of English (SAVTE), the course gives a real flavour of the University experience, giving participants a chance to take part in a range of small group activities and discussions. It also provides vital information, advice and guidance such as how to apply to university and how to finance your studies.

What makes the course innovative – and award-winning - is that the sessions feature discussion stimulated by ‘objects’ – objects that may be of personal significance to participants, or objects that form part of Museums Sheffield’s vast store of treasures from around the world.

There are no formal entry requirements, but please note that:

  • participants for whom English is their second language must be able to speak and write the language to at least ESOL Level 2
  • participants who have already gained a degree are not eligible for this course.
