Student Engagement Programme

What is the Student Engagement Programme?

The Student Engagement Programme is a voluntary programme which allows students to get involved with a range of projects run by the Widening Participation team. We welcome interest from student societies, individual students, or informal student groups. Your input into the design and delivery of our activity could make a real difference. The voluntary nature of the Programme allows students to have more influence over the way we run our events and to get more involved in the design and delivery of sessions.

We are looking for students to collaborate on a range of different projects with us. These range from collaborating on our Destinations Conference through to social media take-overs. We also welcome you to get in touch if you have other ideas that you think could make a difference to students from underrepresented groups.

On the Programme you will have the opportunity to collaborate with the Widening Participation team and shape our events, gain a deeper understanding of WP at the University of Bristol, influence prospective students, and provide feedback to the team on events to help us evaluate them well.


Access Postgrad

As a prospective postgraduate student, you may have reservations about the time, skills and resources needed to access postgraduate study. The Access Postgrad scheme provides peer mentoring and skills development sessions to help current University of Bristol undergraduates decide whether postgraduate study is right for them.
