Social responsibility

Widening participation addresses patterns of under-representation in higher education. To do this, we target prospective students from groups that are currently under-represented, including students:

  • from low income backgrounds and low socioeconomic groups;
  • from postcodes where participation in higher education in low;
  • who are the first in their generation to consider higher education;
  • who attend schools and colleges where performance is below the national average;
  • who are care experienced;
  • who have a disability;
  • who are young carers;
  • who are estranged from their families;
  • from under-represented ethnic backgrounds.
