University for all

We have a range of programmes and activities designed to raise aspirations and promote higher education to traditionally under-represented groups.

We are committed to responding to the Welsh Government's expectations outlined in its higher education strategy - For our Future - and have developed a widening access and retention strategy through which we will:

  • raise the aspirations and attainment of students from groups under-represented in higher education in Wales
  • ensure that we recruit students to the University from all backgrounds and recognise the full potential of students during the admissions process
  • offer additional routes onto selected full-time undergraduate courses and more flexible postgraduate modes of delivery
  • provide tailored support for students to allow them to develop academically, professionally and personally to their full potential.

Many staff and students across the University are involved in this important work.
