The University of Liverpool is committed to supporting talented students who wish to access Higher Education, regardless of background. The Liverpool Scholars programme does this by offering Year 12 students the chance to take part in a range of activities aimed at preparing them for university life, including academic skills workshops, lectures, seminars and more. The University is also a partner in the Realising Opportunities programme which is a unique collaboration of 14 leading, research intensive universities, working together to promote fair access and social mobility for students from groups under-represented in higher education.
