Providing opportunities and nurturing talent
We have a long-standing track record of improving social mobility
The Widening Participation and Outreach team delivers projects and activities designed to widen access to the University. We work in partnership with schools and colleges and our focus is to raise awareness of higher education and support attainment of students, particularly those students who are from areas where people are traditionally less likely to go to university, as well as care leavers, disabled students, asylum seekers, refugees and students from racially minoritised backgrounds.
We provide a programme of activity to inform, inspire and enable those students to excel. That means we can attract the brightest and the best, whatever their path to success looks like.
Examples of our outreach activity includes:
We engage pupils, teachers, parents and carers in the activities we run and our work is supported by trained University of Liverpool students and staff, the Guild of Students, the Victoria Gallery & Museum and Professional Services in order to deliver this most effectively.
