We will start offering full degree courses in September 2021.
Before then, we had hoped to run a pilot in 3 prisons starting in January 2021, working collaboratively with students to refine the application processes and study support. Unfortunately, this is currently on pause due to Covid restrictions and we are working hard to re-start in April.
This pilot project delivers a Foundation module from the University of Westminster and will enable us to test our ideas for providing study materials, study skills sessions and tutor support.
Our key target audience is people in prison who are disadvantaged by a lack of Higher Education (HE) provision from UK universities. This means a limited choice of quality education for paying consumers in prison compared to the general population. People are often unable to choose the most suitable course or university for their requirements and tend to be “shoe-horned” into choosing from a limited range of options.
