University of Sussex staff

We are committed to maintaining our diverse student population and we have considerably expanded our outreach programme.

Working with academic schools and colleagues 

Working with our academic schools is central to this and the widening participation department has an increased budget to develop and deliver subject specific activities.

Your academic school will have a nominated lead who works with colleagues to develop proposals and coordinate widening participation activity across your school.

We have worked with academic colleagues across the University to offer a range of exciting events and activities to First-Generation Scholars students from across Sussex and London. 

These include a Particle Physics Masterclass, 'Architecture as Art' day, Life Sciences visit to the Science Museum and World War One day. 

These events offer an invaluable taster of university teaching and learning to students who are considering the subject they may study at university.
