New policy for widening participation

Students sitting working together.

The Vice-Chancellor has decided on a new policy to widen participation on study programmes. Widening participation is an important part of the University’s efforts to be an inclusive higher education institution that welcomes everyone to higher education.

The University is to work for diversity in education, stimulate underrepresented groups to apply to higher education and work to counteract socially unbalanced recruitment. Through targeted efforts to widen participation, the University can attract potential students who would otherwise not have taken the step of studying at university. 

The overall objectives of the new policy include identifying underrepresented groups, creating awareness of widening participation and its positive effects, and developing concrete tools and methods to effectively implement wider participation. 

The University hopes to strengthen its commitment to diversity and inclusion through the new widening participation policy and sees this as a key step towards becoming an even more welcoming higher education institution for all.
