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 

In the widening participation events team, we work with academics and tutors across the university to deliver subject-specific activity for young people from under-represented backgrounds. 

We also work closely with academics to support the development of new and innovative sessions for younger years. This includes offering a programme of professional development in working with young people and a robust evaluation strategy to support development.

Visit our bookings portal to meet the events team and find out more about what we do.
