UK Student Recruitment and Widening Participation

The UK Student Recruitment and Widening Participation team works with students and their supporters across the UK. In addition to the University-wide Open Days and Offer Holder Days, we organiser a number of on-campus events and activities, giving students the opportunity to visit Queen Mary. 

Our work in widening participation aims to improve social mobility by improving access to higher education for under-represented groups. More information can be found in our Access and Participation Plans:
