Working with schools and colleges
We work closely with teachers, advisers and other partners to offer a range of interactive outreach and recruitment activities. Our aim is to enthuse and inspire talented young people from all backgrounds about higher education.
COVID-19 update: During 2020/21 our Access and Outreach programmes will be delivered virtually with some face-to-face events. We will be guided by government guidelines and University policy and will work directly with programme participants and our school and college partners to keep you informed of progress.
