About the Education Liaison team
The Education Liaison team:
- co-ordinates Kingston University's contact with schools and colleges; and
- promotes awareness and helps to raise aspirations for students aged 10–18, via outreach work.
All of our activities have a widening participation focus. We aim to increase the participation rate of those students that have been traditionally unrepresented in higher education.
