What is Children's University?
The Children's University is an international charity that
provides 5 to 14 year olds with access to exciting and innovative
CU Learning activities and experiences outside the normal school
We celebrate achievement and reward participation through
the award of Children's University certificates. Raising children's
aspiration is important to us and we aim to develop the
understanding that learning can be the 'satellite navigation system
to better places in life'.
Any child, aged 5 to 14 years can join us and, when issued
with a CU Passport To Learning, is able to take part
in CU validated Learning Activitiesand
Each hour of CU validated learning they complete brings
the child closer to a Children's University graduation certificate,
presented at a locally organised CU graduation ceremony.
Celebrating achievement is important to us.
What is a CU Learning Destination and what
kind of activities are CU Learning Activities?

places and organisations that provide high quality
CULearning Activities. CU
Learning Activitiesare activities that have been
quality approved by the Children's University. We validate any
activity that will enable children or young people to
develop skills or knowledge, as long as it relates to a subject
that can be studied further in Higher Education.
