Funding is available through the ACCESS RGU widening participation initiative, helping groups that are traditionally under-represented at university.
You can help a student into higher education and ensure they successfully complete their studies by supporting need-based scholarships and ACCESS RGU initiatives.
ACCESS RGU delivers outreach activities with schools and communities, coordinates on-campus learning opportunities for prospective students and provides advice and guidance for applicants and enrolling students. The programme of activities is committed to delivering the University's strategy to extend access to learning and enable talented individuals from under-represented groups, particularly those from deprived areas, to achieve their ambitions through higher education, whatever their circumstances. ACCESS RGU’s strategic aims are to:
Build Ambition: raise aspirations and develop ambition,
- Enable Access: mitigate barriers and create student-centred access pathways, and
- Support Achievement: support the development of skills-enriched graduates with the confidence and capacity to achieve their ambitions, whatever their circumstances.
