School and College Liaison

What we do

Student ambassador talking to students

Our Student Recruitment Officers travel to schools and colleges across the Midlands delivering a suite of presentations and workshops to inform sixth form students about all of the different areas associated with UCAS and university life.

You’ll also find them at schools and colleges across the country attending Higher Education fairs, options evenings and parents’ evenings.

We can provide stands and literature relating to our courses at these events and/or deliver presentations to parents and students.

Hosting University Experience Days

Every year, we host several subject focused activities, inviting students to join us on campus and to try subjects first hand through a range of exciting workshops, activities and lectures lead by our academic staff. Find out more about the events we organise.

For those schools or colleges who feel that they would like to give their students a general insight into university life we will happily host them for a University Experience day – a chance to see our campus, meet our undergraduate students and to learn what life at university is all about.

Widening Participation

A large part of our focus is placed on working with local students from disadvantaged backgrounds who have the academic potential to progress to university but they may not traditionally do so.

To achieve this we work collaboratively with the other Leicestershire based universities and colleges providing Higher Education learning through the REACH partnership. Formed after the removal of Aim Higher this consortium allows us all to effectively engage with students and to ensure that Higher Education is seen as accessible to all.

We are committed to supporting students throughout the important stages of their educational careers to reach their full potential and to inspire them to continue to study their favourite subjects through to degree level.

We hope that you will find the information included useful and that whether you are a teacher or a Careers Advisor that it will help support applications to Higher Education.
