Widening Participation


About the University's Widening Participation work with local primary schools.

Primary and early secondary years initiative

For Edinburgh city primary school pupils who feed into secondary schools with the lowest progression rate to higher education. We normalise and contextualise higher education via school and campus based classes.

Curriculum Ambassadors

Providing curriculum support to primary school partners, where there is a lack of resource or expertise in areas such as, modern languages, mathematics, physical education and sciences. This curriculum support is provided by trained undergraduate volunteers.

The Brilliant Club

For primary and secondary school pupils. A research-led schools programme providing an experience of university-style learning by mobilising our PhD community to share its academic expertise with state schools.
