Improving access to higher education

The Widening Participation team at Sussex supports learners who are under-represented in higher education. We can help you make informed choices about your future.

What do we offer?

If you're interested in studying at degree level, we offer an exciting range of activities.

This includes:

  • campus visits
  • subject masterclasses
  • online webinars
  • an Access programme for students in year 12 and above.

Why we do what we do

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to reach their full potential, regardless of their background. We believe in the power of higher education to drive social mobility and that a diverse, inclusive university community can help make a fairer society for all.

Our work aims to equip learners from under-represented backgrounds with the awareness, advice and opportunities that they need to make informed choices about their future and succeed beyond school.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently running a virtual programme of online activities to continue providing advice and guidance. You can follow our updates on Twitter @access_sussex or contact our team by emailing: participate@denotestationery.com.



How to get involved



Access and Participation Plan

The University of Sussex has created an Access and Participation Plan which is approved by the Office for Students.

This sets out our tuition fee limit and a commitment to access measures, from financial support for students to outreach schemes.
