Recruitment and Outreach

Giving students an insight into university study and higher education

School and college life will be a little different in 2020/21, and it's likely that some social distancing will still be in place.

But we’re ready with a blended and connected provision to help you support your students online, on our campus, or at your school or college.

Discover digital resources to use in class, subject-specific content, live webinars and useful blogs – or speak to us about organising a face-to-face event, workshop and campus visit for pre-16 and post-16.

Whether your students need guidance on making the right decisions after school or college, are thinking about uni, or simply want some insight into a subject, we’re here to help.

Start exploring the section below. And if you have any requests, comments or questions please contact us.

Help your students look to the future

Deciding whether to go to uni or not is a big decision – and a personal one. 

If you work with KS2-KS5 students, we’ll help you show them the exciting opportunities that higher education offers. So you can guide them through the important decisions they need to make about their futures.

We work with pupils of all ages throughout the UK, supporting KS5 students nationally with their university decisions and UCAS applications, and KS2-KS4 students locally, across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, to encourage progression to higher education.

Find out about our programs in the section above, or contact us at rao@port.ac.uk if you have any queries.

Pupil in a classroom

Inspired by supporting you and your students, we’re dedicated to making higher education accessible to everyone and passionate about helping students achieve their potential.

Supporting your students

In 2020/21, our events, workshops and activities are expanded to meet your student’s needs – which means they can be accessed online, on our campus or delivered directly to pupils in the classroom. And we’ll adapt them to support your curriculum and the government guidelines. You decide what works best.

Whether your students are studying GCSEs, A-levels, BTECs, a technical qualification, or are the first in their family to consider university, we’ll help you champion their goals and improve their awareness of higher education, ensuring they:

  • are aware of the wide range of subject areas they can study
  • understand what post-18 options are available to them, including full-time undergraduate study
  • aren't intimidated by tuition and accommodation costs, and are familiar with student finance processes.
  • understand what impact higher education and university study can have on their future careers
  • are aware of what academic and pastoral support will be available to them throughout their university course
  • get an insight into the life of a university student
  • understand how their GCSE and post-16 choices relate to future higher education study
  • how to complete their UCAS application, and make the right decisions about universities and courses

Supporting you

University study and higher education is an ever-changing area. Processes, study-modes and admissions criteria are in constant flux.
