'Widening participation (WP) is a government initiative offering opportunities to groups of people who are under-represented in higher education.' - BMA

 

WPMN exists to break down these barriers by forming a supportive community where we offer tips and advice for prospective and current medical students from underrepresented groups which include students who: 

 

  • ​attend a school with low progression into higher education 

  • are the first generation of their family to consider higher education 

  • are from an underrepresented ethnic group

  • are from a low socio-economic group

  • have a disability 

  • are a care leaver  

  • are a carer
