Widening participation and community outreach
As Wales’ only Russell Group university we are committed to supporting all students realise their potential, regardless of background.
Our Widening Participation work has a particular focus on those are under-represented in higher education and individuals who have experienced educational disadvantage or disruption.
We offer a wide range of programmes and outreach events that have been carefully designed to break down the barriers to higher education and support students through their educational journey.
Summer Schools, festivals and residential programmes
Each year we run a series of summer schools on campus over June, July and August. As a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic this year we will be launching our first virtual summer festival, Gŵyl eCampws Festival.
This two-week digital festival will give students the opportunity to take part in a variety of online and offline activities designed to help them prepare for university life.
Supporting teachers and advisors
We also provide information and support to teachers and careers advisors to help prepare students for higher education.
We have developed strong partnerships with organisations to ensure that the programmes we deliver are as effective as they can be in delivering the best possible outcomes for you and your students.
If you think you and/or your students could benefit from our support, please contact us.
