In 2013, ADAN-UK launched the widening participation and access to higher education initiative in the UK as it became increasingly evident that the African diaspora in the UK was growing in numbers over the years; however, many had limited knowledge about the higher education and its offerings in the UK.
ADAN-UK works in partnership with UK higher education institutions to reach out to the African communities within their geographical domicile. Our members support the universities to host a variety of activities such as:-
- Campus visit and tours
- Open Day events
- Career sessions
These activities are an excellent opportunity to learn about the universities/colleges, and HE courses offered. Our members organise these activities in their respective universities; and act as brilliant role models and inspire the young people. Our members are supported by university student ambassadors to make the events a success.
Events can be scheduled for a full-day, half-day, or just a few hours depending on the needs of the communities and the university. For more information about the program, contact us here.
