University of Nottingham - Ambition
The University of Nottingham's Widening Participation and Student recruitment Outreach Team work towards raising aspirations, attainment and progression to university, particularly among learners who are currently under-represented in higher education. This is achieved through a package of interactions, including a variety of in-school sessions and campus visits, offered to state schools across the East Midlands area. Example activities include short interactive sessions focussing on such areas as 'Is University right for me' and 'Building confidence and resilience', and full-day visits hosted on the University's award-winning campuses.
Pre-16 Ambition Nottingham is a free scheme for high achieving students from the local region, which aims to raise aspirations and awareness of university and enables students and their families to make informed decisions about their future studies. As part of the scheme, students can:
- attend a welcome event and visit the University of Nottingham
- attend a variety of interactive advice and guidance sessions, including subject taster sessions
- partake in a series of interactive advice and guidance sessions
- benefit from revision activities designed to help students achieve their potential
