“This was an excellent chance for us to learn more about university, especially from students themselves. Before I went on the trip I was not sure about going to university but now I can’t wait to pass my GCSE’s and get there.”

“Students are acutely aware that Higher Education is required to achieve future success in the workplace. Without doubt the opportunity to visit universities as part of Aimhigher schemes has developed this awareness.”
Head of Sixth Form
Aimhigher provides discrete activities as well as progressive programmes to target groups of learners who are under-represented in HE, such as disabled students and LAC. We work with these learners and key adults around them to understand the benefits of University and raise awareness of the generic and specific support available to them.
