University STEM Enrichment
The second of the two programmes of STEM Skills Fund is the University STEM Enrichment Residential Programme. The enrichment programme is intended to inspire participants to seriously consider applying to study a STEM-related degree.
Twenty-six students predicted to achieve at least an ‘A’ grade (or the equivalent) in A-level maths, physics or computer science participated on the first enrichment residential. The students came from different parts of England including Doncaster, which has been deemed a social mobility cold spot by the government’s Social Mobility Commission. The first residential was held at Brasenose College, University of Oxford in 2018. All programme participants had been in receipt of either free school meals or the government’s 16-19 Bursary.
