Virtually University


VU is a videoconferencing outreach initiative set up in 2004 by Bedford School with the University of Sheffield and the Sutton Trust. Using videoconferencing technology to inspire and inform Higher Education choices of sixth form students around the country, a range of universities now delivers lectures, tutorials, demonstrations, and career advice to a network of schools.

VU enables students to experience the level and diversity of study available at university, and sometimes to consider university as an option for the first time.


VU send out regular emails notifying schools of events and spare places so if you would like to find out more or join the email list contact them at:
