Event description

Description

This free conference day is for students in Year 10 upwards at school or college, and their teachers. Published world-leading expert academics from the Department of Theology and Religion will present on areas linked with the new A-level specifications in Religious Studies, including Theology and Criminal Justice; Religion and Politics; Philosophy of Religion; and Religion, Gender and Sexuality. There will also be an opportunity to find out more about studying Theology and Religion at university and to meet a university Admissions Tutor. Teachers are also welcome to bring students not currently studying RS/RE/Philosophy who are interested in getting a taste of what Theology and Religion at university might be like. This is a brilliant opportunity to get some expert input - and all for free!

Registration begins at 9.30am and the main part of the day ends at 3.30pm. From 3.30 to 4.30pm there will be an optional campus tour. In order to keep the costs down and make the day as accessible as possible, we are not providing any catering. There is a cafeteria selling drinks, hot and cold food near to the conference area, but this gets very busy at lunchtime, so we recommend bringing a packed lunch and drinks with you if possible. Indoor and outdoor seating areas where you can eat will be available.

Please note that parking on the University of Exeter campus is extremely limited. We recommend that, wherever possible, you use public transport. Exeter St David's station is a 15-minute walk from the conference venue. The Stagecoach D bus service links Exeter High Street with the university campus every 20 minutes and passes Exeter Central station. A limited number of minibus parking permits will be available: please email Dr Susannah Cornwall s.m.cornwall@exeter.ac.uk if you would like to apply for one of these.

A map of the University of Exeter's Streatham campus is at https://www.exeter.ac.uk/visit/directions/streathammap/ - the conference will take place in the Henderson Lecture Theatre at the Xfi Building (building 30 on the campus map).
