Recruitment and Outreach


About Recruitment and Outreach

What we do

The Recruitment and Outreach team create links from schools and colleges to the University. We offer a range of activities designed to interest and inform students about university life in general and the University of Portsmouth. Our work is offered through incremental packages from year 5 through to year 13 students. 

Our core aims

We have two core aims:

  • Increasing applications from under-represented groups in higher education, in particular we work with schools and colleges where there has traditionally been low progression into HE
  • Enabling potential students to make informed decisions about whether the University of Portsmouth is right for them

Student Ambassadors and Mentors

We recruit a team of University Ambassadors (Outreach and Mentors) who support the work we do across all age ranges. All of the University Ambassadors (Outreach and Mentors) employed by the Recruitment and Outreach team are fully trained and DBS checked.
