College Trips

Each year we run dozens of trips to locations right across the UK. These trips normally leave campus on a Saturday or Sunday between 7–8am, with an extra stop to collect students living in town. We then travel by coach to reach our destination around opening time to spend an enjoyable day exploring new places and taking in the sights.

Some of our favourite destinations include Conwy Castle, the Yorkshire Dales and the famous Chatsworth House.

We also regularly visit Stratford to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday, and the seaside town of Whitby for the Whitby Goth Festival and to visit the abbey made famous in Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

For students who enjoy a more metropolitan experience, we also organise trips to big cities including Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham.

In December we also organise trips to Christmas markets, including Durham and York, as well as trips to the Metrocentre in Gateshead. 

Students can purchase tickets for day trips from the Graduate College's online store

Uni Travel

If you’d like to travel a little further afield, you can also make use of Uni Travel, located on campus in Alexandra Square. Uni Travel regularly sells tickets on coach trips to a range of locations across the UK, plus trips to sporting events (including football and rugby), and even package holidays to Europe.
