Widening Participation Academic Tutors

The Realising Opportunities and UniTracks programmes are seeking motivated PhD students to provide academic support to sixth form students, who will be undertaking a Research Skills Project between February and November 2019.

The Programmes

Realising Opportunities

This is a unique collaboration of 15 leading universities, working together to promote fair access and social mobility of students from under-represented groups. Applicants from the RO programme are “the most able but least likely” students to enter HE. They were selected for the scheme due to their high level of potential and strong academic background, in addition to meeting a number of stringent eligibility criteria with regards to their school, family background and exposure to higher education.


This is Warwick’s national outreach access programme for highly able 14-18 year olds from disadvantaged backgrounds. Participants have been selected based on their academic potential, in addition to meeting a number of eligibility criteria with regards to their school, family background and experience of higher education.

Why take part?

This is a great opportunity for you to help raise aspirations from under-represented groups to promote fair access and social mobility. You will develop your tutoring and marking experience and support our students to work on a crucial aspect of these programmes and help them to develop their research skills.
