Widening Participation and
Student Financial Support

The Widening Participation and Student Financial Support department is engaged in a wide range of initiatives to raise the aspirations of pupils currently under-represented in Higher Education.  This includes campus visits, mentoring, summer schools and curriculum enrichment, as well as specific projects such as First Generation and collaborative outreach delivered through HEFCE funded National Networks of Collaborative Outreach (NCOP).

The Department is also responsible for providing financial support for current students through the University’s Hardship fund (Access to Learning fund).  In addition to this the Team also provide support and advice to current students on accessing financial support, and provide specific support for care leavers, estranged students, and those with caring responsibilities.
