Widening Participation - unlocking talent and fulfilling potential

We're committed to enhancing access to higher education for all those who aspire to study at university, regardless of background, and ensuring that Warwick's student body is representative of local and national communities
Experiential and financial support

The Warwick Scholars Programme and Warwick Taught Master's Scholarship Scheme support undergraduate and postgraduate students from widening participation backgrounds.

Enhanced outreach

We support disadvantaged and talented students to progress to higher education through targeted programmes, summer schools and mentoring.


We work with local authorities, schools and colleges to reach learners who are least likely to enter higher education, including projects supporting looked-after children and Coventry's new IntoUniversity centre.

Raising achievement

We supplement A level provision and teacher CPD through pioneering academic programmes and attainment-raising bootcamps.

Harnessing potential

Two innovative schemes, UniTracks and Sutton Scholars, help highly-able students aged 12-18 achieve their potential and enter the most selective higher education courses and institutions. Our new access programme will support those aiming to study at Warwick.

Access to the professions

We support access to Banking and Finance and Law through two schemes for learners aged 14-18, introducing them to the professions and giving them the opportunity to gain valuable work experience.


We're working with 15 leading universities through the Realising Opportunities programme, to promote fair access and social mobility of students from underrepresented groups.
