What it's all about


Children's University Scotland is all about taking part in fun activities outside of your lessons. Every time you do this, you collect a credit coin on Aspire - our exciting members-only online portal!


You choose how you collect your credits - whether it's by playing sport, making music, cooking food, reading your favourite books, exploring a castle, heading outdoors to learn about nature or learning to code - the opportunities are almost endless! We hope Aspire will lead you on your very own learning adventure.


When you've collected enough credits you'll achieve an award. The more credits you collect, the more awards and certificates you take home! If you collect lots of credits, you might even be invited to a special CU graduation ceremony. At the graduation, we’ll present you with a Children's University certificate to celebrate your amazing experiences and achievements!

You're the Boss!


At Children’s University, nobody will tell you where to go and what to do — it’s your choice. There are no tests or exams either, just lots of opportunities to do the things you enjoy.


So log onto Aspire, and find out what you'll be learning next!
