School and College Outreach

Teachers and advisers

Work with us to raise aspirations, nurture progression and support your students’ journey to university.

What we do

Drawing on more than 20 years’ outreach experience we work to:

  • support student attainment
  • raise awareness of the benefits of higher education
  • promote pathways to university
  • prepare students to apply for – and succeed at – university

Our progressive programme of in-school, on-campus and online sessions is delivered in schools and colleges across the UK. It inspires and informs students of all age groups.

Our Outreach programme

Through our activities, presentations, workshops and on-campus visits, we build bespoke learning experiences for your students.

Book an in-school/college visit: we’ll come to you to deliver subject specific sessions, Pre-16 and On Course to Uni sessions.

Join us on-campus: choose from more than 20 interactive sessions designed to introduce your students to university life. We offer a bursary to cover travel costs for eligible schools/colleges.

All our sessions are free and aligned with a number of benchmarks which include Gatsby, the National Curriculum and the NERUPI Framework.

Our Outreach team

Our staff have extensive experience of higher education and working with students of all ages. Outreach Ambassadors, recent Newcastle University graduates, deliver our sessions. They offer a realistic, enthusiastic view of student life with us.
