Widening Participation in Higher Education

At The Sheffield College we offer university level courses in a wide range of subjects, from media make-up through to engineering. Our aim is to make university study accessible for all students, particularly those from under-represented groups within higher education - this is detailed in our Access and Participation Plan.

We want to support students in taking positive steps during their transition into higher education and can offer information sessions, student experience days and curriculum taster sessions. Our sessions include topics such as:

  • Personal statements
  • Student finance
  • UCAS applications
  • Career pathways
  • Higher and Degree Apprenticeships

Please download our Outreach Guide for full details.

We can also work with you to design a bespoke session tailored to your needs. Please contact us for more information:
