Outreach and Widening Participation

The School for Cross-faculty Studies grounds its pedagogical vision in facilitating transformative social, economic and environmental change through interdisciplinary research and teaching. We embrace a problem-based learning approach, treating all disciplinary backgrounds as essential in order to create solutions to societies' most pressing problems. The School's Global Sustainable Development and Liberal Arts departments offer Outreach and Widening Participation programmes designed to introduce students between the age of 14-18 to our method of teaching and learning, and the Big Questions our degree courses pose. We are firmly commited to contributing to a Widening Participation programmes, aiming to empower and enable all individuals to have full access to our challenging and inspiring degrees.

We are able to tailor our GSD and Liberal Arts programmes to your requirements, so please do get in touch with either of our Outreach Co-Ordinators, Dr Marta Guerriero (GSD) or Dr Kirsten Harris (Liberal Arts), to find out more.
