Bring Your Class to Campus

Nipissing University offers subject-specific on-campus visits designed to help high school students explore subjects of interest in high school but at the university level. Here at NU they get to “try on” academic and campus life, and to prepare for the transition to university.

We welcome students from grades 9-12 and we’ll help you plan a visit that fits your student’s interests and schedule.

If you are teaching any of the courses listed, you and your students will have the opportunity to attend a lecture that is related to your current curriculum. Where labs are a large component of the courses, we will also arrange for a lab tour to check out some of our top-of-the-line lab equipment and research areas.

If your course is not on our list, don’t hesitate to contact us with what you would most like to see and we would be happy to set that up for you. We have a few ideas of our own as well.
