  • Learn about how students and lecturers investigate problems through research.
  • Develop an understanding of what identity is all about and what makes us who we are.
  • Experience what it is like to be a research participant as well as a researcher whilst exploring the topic of identity.
  • Hear about real life research from those currently leading and engaged in research projects.
  • Meet other service children thinking of applying to university, as well as those currently studying at ARU, to hear their experiences of application and choice of university.
  • Access ARU’s fantastic support services throughout the residential, such as the Wellbeing team.
  • Explore ARU’s state of the art facilities and experience what life at university could be like.
