Information For Schools & Colleges

Here at DGES we're dedicated to hosting and providing outreach and public engagement events for people of all ages.

We welcome school and colleges for a campus and departmental visit at Aberystwyth University should you be interested. Our teaching staff have hosted numerous 6th form and college students at summer schools and school visits, with several of our lecturers also taking DGES on tour! With a dedicated team of Schools Liaison Officers, DGES is now even more accessible; so if you'd like to come to us, or vice-versa, please see the information on the left-hand side of the page below.


If you're interested in finding out more information about any item on this page, please email Prof Mark Whitehead on
