Getting a taste of university life can have a big impact on a young person and their motivation for study. At the University of Liverpool we provide an introduction to the culture of university study through a variety of different activities tailored to the needs of the young people and their school.
At Liverpool we recognise that learners have individual needs and some may need different levels of support in progressing to higher education. That's why we work with various targeted groups, including young people from a care background, disabled students, young adult carers, estranged students, asylum seeking and refugee students and students from ethnic minority backgrounds.
We work in partnership with a number of organisations and Projects to extend our reach to these learners and have committed our support to improving social mobility by signing up to a number of covenants and pledges.
We are delighted to be able to offer schools the opportunity to participate in our outreach activities and particularly welcome schools who have high numbers of students on roll who live in neighbourhoods where progression to university is low.
