Widening Participation

The School of Politics and International Studies (POLIS) has over thirty five academic staff and is one of the largest politics and international studies departments in the country.

Here, at POLIS, we have a team of academics and a large team of student ambassadors that provide various widening participation opportunities and outreach work within the following subject areas.

If you teach, support or advise people who might be considering studying political studies, or a related discipline, at undergraduate level, then we can provide a comprehensive outreach programme for you.

We have designed the outreach activities in the programme to support teachers and advisers, to inspire school students to continue in their studies, and give students an insight into student life at University.

If you are part of a community group that would like a tour of the University, speak to our students or get involved in subject-related activities. We can also tailor an event for your community group's needs.

Please explore these pages to discover more about our outreach activities, our student ambassador team, and what kind of events we can offer.
