The Department of Widening Participation & Outreach offers a wide range of support, events and activities for pre-16 students from currently under-represented groups in higher education.

Our work aims to raise the aspirations and educational attainment amongst students from under-represented and disadvantaged groups. To participate in our activities, students should be in state schools/colleges and meet one or more of our targeting and eligibility criteria.
