Realising Opportunities is delighted to announce that from 1 August 2013 we will be welcoming three new universities to the Realising Opportunities Partnership: Goldsmiths, University of London, the University of Sheffield and the University of Sussex. This is an exciting time for Realising Opportunities and we welcome our three new Partners, the expertise they will bring and the opportunities they afford for current and potential RO students.
Realising Opportunities (RO) is a unique collaboration of 12 leading universities, working together to promote fair access and social mobility of students from under-represented groups. Students are supported through a coherent programme of activities designed to raise their aspirations to progress to research intensive universities. Applications through UCAS to RO Partner universities from participating students will be given additional consideration with the potential to receive an alternative RO offer from many Partners.
“Realising Opportunities provides lots of help with the application process of university and prepares for long term study in university, not just focussing on getting in.” Realising Opportunities student
“I feel as though I am more prepared for university, less scared and more motivated. I have also been exposed to lots of different top universities.” Realising Opportunities student
