Centre for Widening Participation, Equality and Social Inclusion

About Us

Aberystwyth University is fully committed to the Funding Council’s and the Welsh Government’s priorities and to the removal of barriers (whether physical, social, cultural or financial) to Higher Education.

Aberystwyth University has a long standing commitment to widening access to groups of people who have traditionally been under-represented in Higher Education. The Centre for Widening Participation, Equality and Social Inclusion (then known as the Lifelong Learning Office) was established in 1998 to further one of the University's key aims. Courses and programmes support people of all ages from primary school to adult in the community.

Any concerns about our courses or service, please see here.

Widening Access is included in the University's Strategic Plan.
