Outreach

Art Exchange

We coordinate a range of activities for schools and colleges designed to highlight the benefits of higher education in a fun and interesting way. We also support teachers to help their students make the right choices about their future.

The Outreach team work with schools and colleges across Essex, Suffolk and east London to promote fair access and progression to University. Our primary focus is students who:

  • are the first in the family to progress to University
  • come from low income households
  • are living in areas of social deprivation
  • have a disability
  • have been in care at some point
  • mature students (aged over 21 at the start of an undergraduate course)
