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.

Many of our activities involve ongoing relationships with schools and colleges. We also welcome new partners to work with, as we develop new and exciting projects and events.
