The UK Student Recruitment Team is responsible for the coordination, planning and delivery of key recruitment and widening participation outreach initiatives at the University, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Such initiatives include the University Open Days, attendance at school and college events across the country as well as widening participation outreach set out in the University’s Access Agreement.
