Applying to higher education can be a confusing process and the stakes are high. We will clarify the key stages and deadlines involved, help learners explore the choices ahead of them, understand what universities are looking for and identify the key factors in making a successful application.

We will also highlight the importance of taking your time to ensure you are aware of your deadlines and your school or college deadlines.

Institution Profile:

Schools & Colleges Outreach

Our Schools and Colleges Outreach team is here to help learners, parents and carers understand what’s involved with university study. We run events, talks, campus visits and workshops focusing on raising awareness, aspirations and attainment.

Our activities can be tailored, are designed to be flexible, and we offer a choice of locations to work around your needs. By working together with schools and colleges, we can help give learners the information and inspiration to make informed choices about their future.

Creating an academic link
If you’d like to link up with one of our academic departments, we’d be very happy to hear from you. Please contact us to explore ways that we can help your learners’ progress.

Widening participation
We are committed to widening participation. We firmly believe that everyone who has the potential to benefit from higher education should get the opportunity to study.

We’re here to support bright, talented young people to succeed at school and college, whatever their social or financial background. We can help them think realistically about how university could boost their prospects.

We are proud of our track record for raising people’s aspirations and helping them get results and move towards their goals. We have a wide experience of helping learners in groups that are normally under-represented in higher education.

Our work is targeted to involve students from lower income families, postcodes where fewer people go on to university, young people in care and disabled students.
