An inspiring weekend of training at the University of Warwick for  students in years 10, 11, 12 and 13

The Bright Futures Weekend enables young people to experience life at a world-leading Russell Group university, meet able and aspiring students from across the UK and take their personal development to the next level with expert help from Future Foundations coaches. Over two days participants will experience a packed timetable of engaging and interactive workshops and challenges, hear from inspirational academics and engage with like-minded students from across the country.

The Bright Futures conference is provided by Award Winning training organisation Future Foundations in collaboration with our partners IGGY, an online network connecting the world’s brightest young minds. Join us in December 2016 at the University of Warwick for a unique weekend that will transform your future and motivate you to reach your full personal and academic potential.

Bright Futures has been an incredible, empowering experience. I've learnt to push myself, face my fears, become more independent and I feel inspired now to reach my fullest potential!
