Widening Participation in Geography
On the 20th of July we are organising a student away day at the University of Nottingham for students from widening participation backgrounds* who are interested in studying geography.
On this day students will have the chance to meet new like-minded people, explore the campus of the University of Nottingham and get advice on the university’s application process. With a workshop on careers in geography (by Black Geographers) and mini-lectures about current themes in geography students can get a real feel for what studying geography at university is like.
*We invite students from year 10, 11 and 12 with an interest in studying geography at university and who fit one of the following widening participation criteria:
- Receive free school meals
- Neither parent attended university
- From Black, Asian or minority ethnic groups
- Disabled students
- From a military family
- Students with learning disabilities
Lunch and snacks will be provided on the day. Up to £15 travel reimbursement per attendee is available (we will contact you with arrangements for reimbursement; if your travel will exceed £15ppn, please contact us to discuss this as we may be able to cover more).
