    Hey!

    I was wondering if people could tell me the universities that offer schemes that would lower the entry requirement, providing you complete what they ask for.

    I know of
    UOB - Access 2 Birmingham
    Newcastle - PARTNERs program
    Leeds - Access 2 Leeds

    Anymore?

    Southampton- http://www.southampton.ac.uk/student...dmissions.page

    Glasgow- http://www.gla.ac.uk/about/wideningp...deadjustments/

    Nottingham- https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/ugstudy...missionspolicy

    That's just a few for you. The majority of universities do have policies on contextual data/widening participation and will often reduce the offer if you meet the criteria. The best thing for you to do will be to look at university websites on the admissions pages to see what they say- just because they don't have a named scheme (e.g. Partners at Newcastle) doesn't mean they don't reduce offers.

    Hi

    I am working on looking at these applications too. Here is a semi list http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki/Access_Schemes. Also what is the Newcastle partners scheme? Also Southampton give contextualised offers.

    I did the access to Southampton scheme, it was quite a lot of effort and you only get the reduced offer if you put it as your firm choice. In hindsight it wasn't worth it but if you are probably going to get around BBB then it may be worth a shot.

    Don't have you to attend the summer school? A bit late for that.
