Hello from the Higher Education Opportunities Team at Bath Spa University

The Higher Education Opportunities Team (HE Opps) oversees the delivery of schools and colleges outreach activities for the University.

Our activities include attending HE Fairs and hosting talks, workshops and activities to support students, parents, and teachers and advisers across the UK to support applicants on their journey into Higher Education.

We are always happy to hear from schools and colleges about supporting their year 11, 12 and 13 students with their transition to higher education. To book an activity, please email us on [email protected].

Within our team we provide high quality presentations and workshops to students, staff and parents related to higher education.These sessions can be delivered online, at your institution or when appropriate at Bath Spa University.

The Ignite Outreach Package

Ignite is our outreach package designed to support and introduce students, their parents and teachers and advisors to topics relating to Higher Education. We can tailor and create an Ignite package to meet the individual needs of each school and college we work with.

We currently offer Ignite virtually, and this can be applied to any virtual platform your institution may use. Post-covid we are happy to run Ignite workshops in person and always enjoy welcoming schools and colleges to visit our campuses.

Student Led

Where possible we will always engage our Student Ambassadors in the work we do. We believe that the most effective and valuable advice future students can receive about Higher Education is by those on the ground, and those who have been on a similar journey to them.

If you would like us to set up a live Q & A panel with our student ambassadors, or have students who would benefit from talking to a current university student - please let us know and we can set something up for you and your student(s).
