Study Higher is a collaborative network of Higher Education (HE) providers who work together to deliver outreach activities to young people to inform them about future educational opportunities. Work is specifically delivered across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Swindon with an overall aim to increase participation in HE by young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Study Higher was established in 2011 by Buckinghamshire New University, Oxford Brookes University and the University of Oxford with the aim of preserving the legacy of Aimhigher MKOB. The University of Reading joined the partnership in 2014 along with six further education colleges. In January 2017 Study Higher was successful in its bid for funding to the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) as part of their National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) and as a result expanded again and is now made up of 15 institutions.
