STUDENT SERVICES SUPPORT FOR EDUCATION AND WIDENING PARTICIPATION

Student Services co-operates with the UK Student Recruitment and Widening Participation teams in supporting visits from school groups, providing a range of activities from short guided library tours to support for Extended Project Qualifications.

Groups are welcome to visit the Mile End  and Whitechapel Libraries as part of a campus tour with student ambassadors acting as guides at any time during Library opening hours.

Event organisers can select from the range of activities listed below according to their requirements; most activities take place at Mile End Library but can be conducted at Whitechapel by arrangement

Please contact the UK Student Recruitment team in the first instance.
