Brookes Engage is a fully funded Year 12 access programme open to young people from across Oxfordshire from backgrounds under-represented in higher education, studying in the first year of a Level 3 qualification (A Level, BTEC etc).The eighteen month-long programme is designed to support pupils to make a successful transition to university whilst also providing them with experiences that will develop skills and attributes that will be beneficial in the world of work.
Participants will take part in a range of activities over the course of the programme during monthly sessions, engaging with academic staff, students and local employers, as well as taking part in cultural and educational trips. In addition to the monthly sessions, participants will undertake an independent academic assignment with the support of a university tutor, attend a week-long summer school, and receive one-to-one mentoring from an Oxford Brookes student.
Brookes Engage students are also eligible to apply for the Oxford Brookes Community Scholarship which awards students with a payment of £1,000 in their first year.
At the end of the programme, participants should feel confident in making the next step in their education career, be that in work or at university. The programme is completely free of charge to participants and bursaries for travel are available.
The programme will run from November 2017-July 2019. Dates will depend on the subject pathway chosen, as follows:
