Widening participation

Student Recruitment

The university has a long standing commitment to widening participation into higher education. The university takes an active role in helping learners from the most under-represented groups to progress into higher education.

Our exceptional team coordinates a programme of targeted and stimulating activities to give students a greater understanding of higher education study and the application process. These activities are specifically targeted at schools and colleges across the South West region and include the following:

  • Taster Days
  • Mentoring Programmes
  • Sixth Form Induction Events
  • Higher Education workshops and presentations
  • Summer Schools

Our activities give learners the opportunity to meet current undergraduate students and learn first hand from our academics across are range of workshops. This experience helps learners build confidence, motivation and raise aspirations to progress onto higher education.
