Widening Participation

Our First-Generation Scholars scheme for school and college students aims to promote fair access to higher education for all. We offer a variety of events and activities that support young people to make informed choices about their futures.

Our First-Generation Scholars scheme is designed to introduce young people to higher education, to raise aspirations and attainment and to provide information that students will need to make decisions about their future education and careers. We offer a wide range of engaging and interactive activities that offer a real taste of living and studying at university.

We work in partnership with selected schools and colleges across London and Sussex to deliver a sustained programme of support to students in Years 6 to 13.
