Different target groups for widening participation (WP) are surveyed and those most relevant to the university identified. The university is very active in outreach and targeted recruitment. However, an equally important aspect of WP is providing support for WP students within higher education. Suggestions are made for ways in which the university could provide such support, building on its excellent learning and teaching. It is believed that this would be to the benefit of all our students.
