Widening Participation support:

Connecting students with alumni from similar backgrounds can be incredibly powerful. As a University we do a lot of outreach activity and work with current students from backgrounds that are under-represented in higher education (first generation to attend University, BME, young carers, students with a disability or learning difficulty, low-participation neighbourhoods, low-income families). If you identify with any of these and would be happy for us to contact you about activity that directly relates to this, please tick below.
