Event description

Description

Following the successful multi-million pound bid, the Southern Universities Network (SUN) will deliver collaborative outreach in areas identified as having low overall participation in higher education. The programme will focus on providing activities, events and workshops to increase outreach involvement in local schools and colleges, especially targeting young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, young men, and ethnic minority groups.

The network’s successful bid, which is worth more than £14 million over four years, will see activity delivered to young people aged 13 – 19 living in target wards throughout Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

The multi-million pound project has been launched by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). The National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) sees £60 million divided between 29 consortia to increase participation in higher education across disadvantaged groups.
