The FOCUS Programme

Working with schools, universities and corporate partners, we provide information, advice and guidance, and support development of key skills through fun and immersive workshops.

IntoUniversity offers Primary and Secondary schools a programme of free immersive educational activities and workshops. These support students’ aspirations, attainment and development of key skills that promote success at school and beyond. Young people participate in our FOCUS programme either in school, at a corporate partner or at a local IntoUniversity learning centre.
