About Uni Connect 

Uni Connect is an Office for Students funded programme which brings together 29 partnerships across England of universities, colleges and other local partners to offer activities, advice and information on the benefits and realities of going to study a higher education qualification. Uni Connect aims to:

  • reduce the gap in higher education participation between the most and least represented groups
  • support young people to make well-informed decisions about their future education
  • support effective and impactful local collaboration by higher education providers working together with schools, colleges, employers and other partners
  • contribute to a stronger evidence base around ‘what works’ in higher education outreach and strengthen evaluation practice in the sector.

The programme is intended to complement and add value to the work that higher education providers undertake through their access and participation plans, in particular work that is best delivered in collaboration.
