The Outreach Team work closely with students of all ages, teachers and advisors to provide interactive information, advice and guidance and deliver a range of events and activities designed to broaden aspirations and enhance the awareness and benefits of higher education.

We deliver impartial information, advice and guidance, to prospective students via presentations and workshops on any pastoral subject related to Higher Education. The team also design and deliver bespoke activities and events for school and college pupils as well as higher education information, advice and guidance to post-16 tutors and careers advisors.

Our Widening Participation (WP) work is targetted to individuals in schools, colleges and other educational providers with low higher education participation rates and under-represented groups. The team organise a range of activities aimed at raising awareness of and broadening aspirations to higher education and deliver talks and workshops supporting transition between key stages. Each of the WP Officers is responsible for a specific geographical region local to our University campuses or a specialist focus.
