As part of our commitment to access and widening participation, the university works in partnership with a network of primary and secondary schools delivering a programme of aspiration raising activities. These include on campus visits, workshops both in school and within our UCLan and Young Scientist Centre, group mentoring programmes, residential activities and revision sessions.
We work with schools who have a high proportion of young people who are from backgrounds under-represented in Higher Education (HE). We base this on factors such as:
As part of our wider access work we deliver activities with young people in community settings. Alongside our school and community programmes we run targeted activities that work with young people from specific groups that are underrepresented in university, find out more about our social inclusion activities.
If you are a school or organisation that works with young people and you would like more information about the activity that we run through our access and widening participation programmes, please contact us on JLAndrew@uclan.ac.uk.
If your school is not able to take part in our access-specific activities there is a huge range of programmes and events open to all schools and colleges.
