Uni Connect

Case studies

Uni Connect is supporting a wide range of higher education outreach opportunities across England.

By sharing specific examples of how Uni Connect partnerships are working to support the goals of the programme, we aim to encourage effective practice across the higher education sector.

Case studies help to foster good practice: they capture what has worked - as well as what hasn’t worked so well, to illustrate lessons learned.
