Our Widening Participation team have developed a long-term programme of activity with identified target cohorts, designed to raise student’s aspirations and give them a clear idea of the benefits of higher education. Over the course of their school career, our dedicated team will work with students at key transition points, delivering a range of activities and events that will offer impartial information, advice and guidance. The aims of this activity are to debunk some of the myths that surround university, give them an awareness of the many different paths that are open to them, and to help them to achieve their academic potential.
