Virtual University Experience

Pathways will be offering schools a choice of 2 Virtual University Experience activities:


Individual Virtual Campus Tours: Live Session – Available Now

Experience a virtual campus tour of one of our partner institutions from a representative of the Pathways team. You will be given a guided “walk through”, highlighting some of the key aspects of the respective university. You will see academic facilities, university accommodation, as well as student services, and the tour will also include anecdotes of student experiences. Pre-recorded video versions of the tours are also available on request. To request VR headsets* for this activity please click here

Virtual Open-Day in a Day: Live Session – Coming Soon

Get students familiar with the process of making their university choice with our virtual open-day sessions. This is helpful for navigating universities whilst we aren’t able to visit campuses physically at present, but also in preparing students for what to expect on an open day if they haven’t done one before.

We will go through:

  • The basics of planning how to get to the university;
  • Talk through the process of arriving and the different faculty and subject talks/tasters they will experience;
  • Direct them through a virtual campus tour of the university;
  • Highlight the importance of getting that real experience from current students and where that can be found online.

After that session, I am thinking about University. I wasn’t before. I’m more confident now.
