The Widening Participation Team works with academic departments to offer a wide range of activities that seek to raise the aspirations and attainment of students who would not otherwise consider higher education. We work most intensively, but by no means exclusively, in east and north London. Many activities involve input from academic departments, and are supported by our trained team of student ambassadors. Some work is carried out in collaboration with other universities and external partners committed to improving access to higher education.
Widening participation is also about providing support to ensure that students who have the potential to do so succeed throughout the student life cycle at the College. Our widening participation strategy goes further than simply bringing students into the institution, extending through their time at the College and beyond. One important way that we provide support for new undergraduate students at Queen Mary is through our Peer Assisted Study Support (PASS) scheme.
