Aimhigher Plus is a new initiative targeting areas of the West Midlands where the progression of young people to higher education is lower than GCSE attainment suggests it should be.

Aimhigher Plus will build on the extensive higher education outreach already provided by universities, and develop new and exciting opportunities for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Aimhigher Plus is part of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP), supporting the government’s goals to double the proportion of disadvantaged young people entering higher education (HE) by 2020, increase by 20% the number of students from ethnic minority groups and address the underrepresentation of young men from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Aston University of one of the 6 partner universities involved in the Aimhigher Plus.
