During the COVID-19 pandemic
Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19 and in accordance with advice from Public Health England, we have cancelled all in-person access and outreach events.
Throughout this time the College and the wider University are still committed to encouraging young people with the academic potential and enthusiasm to succeed at university to apply regardless of school or background.
The following resources have been prepared for students and teachers and we will keep this page updated as more resources are created. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also have a list of further resources for those in our Link Areas (Merseyside and North Wales) which you can request via email@example.com
