    Help your students find out about university courses

    Discover Brookes is a free access programme for students studying a Level 3 qualification.

    Our outreach team will deliver free subject taster workshops at your school or college. The programme is primarily aimed at students who may require more sustained and intensive support in planning their route into higher education, such as young people from backgrounds currently under-represented in higher education. This includes students who are:

    • from low participation postcodes
    • from black or ethnic minority backgrounds
    • have a history of receiving free school meals

    I feel inspired and educated and I’m looking forward to going to university

    Subject workshops Year 12 / First year of college

    Students will gain a real insight into university courses by participating in two stimulating subject workshops at your school or college. Our team of subject specialists have worked closely with Oxford Brookes Academics to design each workshop.

    The subject workshops can be supplemented by higher education talks on choosing a university course, student finance and the benefits of studying at university.

    Summer Schools Year 12 / First year of college

    During an intensive summer school students will explore their subject in workshops delivered by Oxford Brookes Academics and will experience student life while living in student halls.

    Online Mentoring Year 13 / Second year of college

    In Year 13, participants receive online mentoring by one of our current students to increase their confidence in making the next step in their education. We are also able to come in to support your students with their application to university and writing their personal statement.

    Please get in touch if you’d like to arrange a meeting with one of the Discover Brookes Widening Participation Assistants to discuss how we can best meet your requirements.
