Students in Classrooms

Primary and Pre-16 Students in clasrooms

Placing our students into classrooms in local schools and colleges is a really valuable way to raise young people's aspirations towards Higher Education (HE). Acting as positive and inspiring role models, students taking part in the Undergraduate Module Scheme also gain practical classroom experience, develop transferable skills and build confidence working in new situations.

Students taking part are keen to share their passion for their subject, encourage young people in their learning and engage with the local community. Students receive training, an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check and support throughout their placement for these important roles, with school placements sourced and managed centrally by the Widening Participation Team.

If you would like to be considered for hosting a student placement, please get in touch with us at
