Events and resources for sixth forms and colleges

We are delighted to offer a varied schedule of innovative and enlightening activity throughout the academic year to give students an insight into what it's like to study at university.

We work to increase access to the opportunities offered at university and inspire students to consider Higher Education.

Our activities are designed to give students a taste of university life as well as learning more about their subject at undergraduate level. We offer support to those who are considering making an application, with everything from personal statements to student finance.

Schools Membership Scheme

Our Schools Membership scheme launched in 2015 to create a network of schools, sixth-forms and colleges across the UK and around the world. By identifying the schools, we work closely with each year, we are better able to allocate our resources, and are proud to offer our partner schools a range of exclusive benefits.
