Widening participation in higher education

We want to identify and attract the most talented students to Manchester, regardless of their educational background – and we need your help to do so.

At The University of Manchester we seek excellence, inclusivity and impact in everything that we do. Widening participation in higher education - in particular, enabling fairer access to a Manchester education for talented students regardless of their background - is central to our values as a world-class university. 

Discover our range of widening participation programmes for local secondary schools, and help your pupils to raise their awareness of higher education environments and culture, get information and advice on study programmes, institutions and career opportunities, and enhance their academic, study and personal skills.
