The Outreach team has a focus on working with schools in the H.P. and nearby states to raise aspirations and improve motivation among local students in order to widen participation in higher education. Our outreach programmes give participants the opportunity to find out what it’s like to study and work in subject specific areas across the whole University. Each of these programmes also provides practical help with study techniques, support and an introduction to life at the University.
We seek to provide impartial information and advice to support subject choice for and options and future higher education progression. We also work with teachers and advisers so that they can provide appropriate guidance to their students. All of our activities, are provided free of charge to schools.
When selecting students for participation in an activity, we ask schools to give priority to students from groups who are currently under represented in higher education and who have the potential to progress to university.
