OU in Wales launches new ‘STEM talent’ programme

STEM Talent

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Open University in Wales has launched a new ‘STEM talent’ programme which enables sixth form students to study an OU science, technology, engineering or mathematics module during their studies. The initiative has been developed in partnership with the all-Wales Reaching Wider network.

“We are delighted that through this project we can offer more Welsh students, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, the opportunity to undertake OU study to support their transition to Higher Education.”

Eleri Chilcott, Widening Access Manager, OU in Wales

The programme will help students to improve their knowledge in their chosen STEM subject and develop an understanding of what it is like to study at university. It will also provide them with evidence which can help to strengthen their UCAS applications and help them to stand out when applying for competitive university courses.

As part of this programme, The Open University in Wales is offering students from under-represented groups a bursary to study one of these courses for free.

To find out more and for details on how to apply please visit our STEM Talent page.
