UK Student Recruitment and Outreach

We work with students of all ages and backgrounds, teachers and careers advisers, parents and carers, as well as members of the community to encourage participation in higher education and to recruit and convert undergraduate and postgraduate students to the University. Our work covers students from primary school age through to mature learners. We organise university experience days, progression programmes and summer schools; attend national career exhibitions such as UCAS; deliver higher education information talks and attend events held in schools and colleges. We also run our annual teacher and adviser conference to support continuous professional development.
