Widening Access

The University of Aberdeen has a long-standing commitment to Widening Access to Higher Education.  As an Institution we aim to create an outstanding and inclusive educational environment, to ensure every student has the opportunity to reach their potential. We try to raise aspirations and thus improve access to Higher Education particularly for people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

We work with individuals, Primary and Secondary Schools, and Further Education Colleges to support learners at every stage of their journey. Our work is centred around a number of initiatives aimed at different audiences.
