The Widening Participation (WP) team provide University staff and students with advice, support and, limited funding for activities that support learners from less advantaged backgrounds.
It also aims to ensure that students from all backgrounds are supported while studying here, outlined by our access and participation plan (pdf).
Working with schools and colleges
We work with local schools and colleges offering a variety of activities, at both primary and secondary level, which aim to raise aspirations, and support progression to university. We also offer sessions for Access to HE and vocational learners.
We also run a range of programmes which support individual students including Pathways to Law, Pathways to STEM, Ambition Nottingham and four week-long summer schools.
We work with IntoUniversity to support them in providing students from the age of 7 to 18, with impartial information about university, in order to raise the aspirations of disadvantaged students across Nottingham
