We offer a variety of opportunities and activities designed to widen access to higher education and help pupils decide on the right path for their future. 

Opportunities available to pupils from widening particiation backgrounds who live in England or Wales but outside the West Midlands region include:

  • Higher Education Insight residential (HEI) - the HEI residential is designed to raise the aspirations of academically gifted year 12 students from non-traditional backgrounds who live in areas outside of the West Midlands. 
  •  Contextual offer scheme - the contextual offer is a alternative route to studying here for talented students from widening participation backgrounds. It recognises the potential of students whose personal cirumstances may have restricted achievement at school or college.

All schools can also request a school or campus visit. We are happy to visit your school or college to lead a range of events designed to inform, guide or motivate students. We can also host visits by school or college groups to our campus, which are great for 'demistyfying' what universities are about and giving students real hands on experience.
