Creative Forces Day - Chelmsford

Register your interest
Anglia Ruskin University graduate Dan

You are invited to attend our Creative Forces Day in Chelmsford on the 16th November.

We're also offering Creative Forces Days in Peterborough and Cambridge.

This event is offered in collaboration with Make Happen. It allows Service children to engage with higher education by taking part in a day of fun and interactive activities hosted at our Chelmsford campus. Students will have the opportunity to learn what university can offer, the careers available beyond higher education-level study, and to explore their ‘Service child' identity in the process. It's also an opportunity to build the capacity of schools to understand and support their Service children.

Who this event is for?

Service children* in years 7–11 and their teachers/advisors.

Although Creative Forces Days are designed to appeal to the military community, we would encourage service children to bring a buddy to learn and experience the day too.

What does the experience include?

  • Age-appropriate seminar-style course taster session
  • Age-appropriate lecture-style talk on the benefits of university
  • The chance to ask current university students questions about student life
  • A session focused on the support available to Service children through their educational journey.
  • A tour of our beautiful campus.
