Outreach Overview

2019-02-23 Saturday

Meeting with students from local school in Southampton (UK) organised by the UK Student Recruitment and Outreach Team at the University of Southampton. Activity organised by Muniza Siddiqui, widening participation team leader. This could be an excellent partnership for developing and testing the BES educational toolkit.

The University of Southampton has a proud long-term record in supporting access and achievement by students from under-represented groups. The outreach activity is designed to raise attainment and realise aspirations among members of under-represented groups who have the potential to benefit from a University education at Southampton or elsewhere. This includes residential events and collaborative work with other institutions, for example schools, sixth form/FE colleges, other universities and charities such as The Social Mobility Foundation and The Brilliant Club. We have an excellent reputation for collaborative work with a range of partner organisations, both in the local region (Hampshire, Dorset, Isle of Wight and Wiltshire) and further afield, including London and the Midlands.
