Realising Opportunities (RO) is a unique collaboration of leading, research-intensive universities, working together to promote fair access for those groups under-represented in higher education.
The Realising Opportunities programme provides you with skills and information to help not only make informed decisions about your future and to raise your aspirations to progress to a leading research intensive university, but to support your current work in school/college.
Successful completion of the RO programme will give you the opportunity to have your achievements recognised through UCAS, resulting in additional consideration and the potential for alternative offers from the RO universities.
Realising Opportunities is a two year programme over Year 12 and 13. The structured and interactive programme will help you develop your academic skills, improve your awareness of Higher Education and knowledge of how to apply to university. It will also give you increased access to the RO universities through events and activities.
To take part in the Realising Opportunities programme you must meet the eligibility criteria. Recruitment takes place in the Autumn term, from September to early November.
