We're here to support your journey to university

Our role is to promote equality, diversity and inclusion by supporting students from specific groups to access and prepare for university.  We recognise the benefits that a diverse and talented student community can bring.

We work with students that are:

  • from low-income backgrounds
  • the first in the family to attend university
  • care-experienced
  • carers
  • estranged from their families
  • asylum seekers and refugees
  • black and under-represented ethnic backgrounds
  • LGBT+
  • student parents
  • autistic
  • mature students.

We can offer you information, advice and guidance for your university application, and tips to help you prepare for university. Explore our ‘get involved’ pages to see what projects you can get involved with.
