Education Liaison and Outreach
The aim of the team is to act as the link between schools and colleges and the university. We offer a range of activities that aim to interest and inform students about university life in general and the University of Portsmouth in particular.
- Increasing applications from under-represented groups in higher education, in particular we work with schools and colleges where there has traditionally been low progression into HE
- Enabling potential students to make informed decisions about whether the University of Portsmouth is right for them
We recruit a team of Student Ambassadors and Mentors who support the work we do across all age ranges. All of our Ambassadors and Mentors are fully trained and CRB/DBS checked.
In addition to our activities delivered directly with schools and colleges we run a free individual membership club for 11-16 year olds, the UP for It club. The club aims to raise aspirations, change perceptions and encourage pupils from all socio-economic backgrounds to see higher education as an attractive and accessible option.
