Schools Membership Scheme

The Schools Membership Scheme was launched in April 2015 to create a network of schools and colleges from Essex, Suffolk, East London and Norfolk and has enabled us to transform the way we communicate with them.

By creating this single channel of information we are able to communicate our news and events more effectively, and keep our members informed and up to date with current higher education issues. We aim to tailor our provision for each school/college, to enable access to our wide range of opportunities and resources helping students make informed decisions and encouraging as many as possible go on to university.

How the programme works

Our Schools Membership Scheme currently has two levels ‘Schools Membership Plus’ and ‘Schools Membership Pre-16’; schools/colleges are awarded membership status in recognition of their ongoing support.


Upon joining the scheme schools/colleges are provided with a comprehensive introductory pack outlining everything they need to know about the scheme including the exclusive benefits for members. Member benefits include (but not limited to): priority booking onto our outreach events, a travel bursary to put towards on campus activity, free teacher CPD, monthly newsletters and a 25% discount for teachers on University of Essex Masters.
