At Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences, equal and fair access to our degree programmes from all backgrounds is embedded in our core values. Widening participation aims to recruit prospective students from under-represented groups to higher education irrespective of their background. These may include pupils that have disabilities, are from low income backgrounds, care-experienced, young carers, ethnic minorities or low participation postcodes. Some examples of widening participation initiatives that we are involved in include;
- Social Mobility Foundation Mentoring
- MCR Pathways Mentoring and Talent Tasters
- The Strathclyde Cares programme (mentoring)
- Science @Strathclyde
- Day of Science @ Strathclyde
- Senior Phase Induction Day
If you would like to learn more about widening participation at SIPBS, we would like to hear from you.
