Get involved

To deliver on our Access and Participation Plan 2020 – 2025, we welcome your ideas on how we can help more students from different backgrounds to access Higher Education (HE) and succeed in their studies.

Working together

We believe we can make the biggest impact by all working together to achieve this for our students. Staff, students, colleagues and young people from local schools and colleges we would love to hear from you all – see different ways you can get involved below.

Share your ideas

In line with our Access and Participation Plan, we wish to encourage staff, students, colleagues and students from schools and colleges to share their ideas on how we can help more students from different backgrounds to access HE and succeed in their studies.
