Into Schools Project
What is the Into Schools Project?
NUSU Into Schools is a student-led outreach project from Newcastle University Students' Union, aiming to raise aspirations, encourage students to think about Higher Education, showcase the 'real student experience’, and the value of getting involved in extracurricular activities whilst studying at university.
Volunteering in schools is a fantastic way to gain experience working with children, develop important employability skills, as well as giving back to the community.
If you work in a School and feel you would benefit from being a part of this programme and sign up to receive news about what we are up to, click here or check out the 'Teachers Information' tab below.?
How can I get involved with this?
We have many different projects in our Into Schools programme that you can get involved with: as a sports club or society, you can create and deliver a fun and interactive workshop to deliver in local schools; if you attended a state school in the UK, you can return to your old school to deliver a talk about student experience and your journey to university; or you can share your love of your subject by tutoring in a local school providing support for pupils preparing for GCSE or A-Levels.?

We promote Widening Access
Here at Newcastle University, we believe that all students should have the opportunity to pursue further and higher education regardless of their?social background, age, gender, disability status or ethnicity. Unfortunately, the?North East has the lowest young participation in HE rate in England at 33%?(compared to the national average in England of 38% and a rate in London of 48% - HEFCE data).
As such, Into Schools?was set up to encourage student’s involvement?in schools.
