The Health Sciences Outreach Team deliver outreach and widening participation activities on behalf of the Faculty of Medicine and Health, at the University of Leeds.
Representing a wide range of undergraduate programmes, the team works alongside current students and academics to provide an extensive range of talks, workshops and subject taster sessions, aimed at raising the aspirations of students, inspiring them to pursue a career in healthcare through university education.
Our activities raise awareness of the various healthcare professions available and support students at every stage of applying to higher education, with events taking place both at the University of Leeds and in schools and colleges nationwide. Many of our activities are targeted, so that we reach and support those students who are underrepresented at university in our subject areas, aligning with our Access and Participation Plan commitments to the Office for Students. Information on the impact of our widening participation activities and initiatives can be accessed in our Annual Report.
All of our events and resources are free of charge – all we ask is that you support us by completing the relevant evaluations so that we can continue to develop our activities and deliver to the highest standard!
The Health Sciences Outreach Team is part of Educational Engagement, the schools and colleges outreach and widening participation office at the University of Leeds.
