We work closely with schools, colleges and education partners across London and the South East to support academic attainment and progression to higher education.

The Education Support Unit co-ordinates the University's work with schools and colleges, and is a team with extensive and varied experience in the education sector, including qualified teachers and careers advisers, outreach officers, recent graduates and student ambassadors. 

We are committed to increasing the numbers of students from under-represented groups who enter higher education and have a dedicated AccessAbility team to provide information and guidance to disabled students who have concerns about going to university and provide additional support for care leavers to enter higher education including our Care Leaver Summer School and Bursary.

Who we work with

We currently work with over 200 schools and colleges in London and Kent. If your school or college is not listed, please do contact us as we may be able to accommodate your request. 

We are also part of the Kent and Medway Collaborative Outreach Programme (KaMCOP), a project focused on facilitating the participation of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in higher education, and our partnership work to lead and sponsor University Technical Colleges and multi-academy school trusts has enabled us to share the expertise that exists within our University with local educational settings.

More about what we do

Visionary Scholarship

For many students, applying to university can be an incredibly difficult and daunting decision. Inclusivity, excellence, determination and ambition lie at the heart of our values, and we understand financial barriers can limit student potential.

We work closely with our network of schools, colleges and education partners across London and the South East to support academic attainment and progression to higher education. Thanks to the generosity of one of our alumni we are pleased to offer two cash scholarships, worth £5000. These will be paid in three instalments during the first year of study.

We invite nominations for students from our network who have received an offer of study on one of our full-time undergraduate courses starting in September 2020.

Students should meet the following criteria to be nominated to receive the Visionary Scholarship:

  • One of no more than two nominations from your institution
