Our work with schools

Downing College works extensively with schools to help students from all walks of life enter higher education. As part of the University's area link scheme for outreach, we work predominantly, but not exclusively, as the first point of contact for schools in Cornwall, Devon and Dorset, including the communities of Plymouth, Torbay, Poole and Bournemouth. 

If you are a teacher at a school in one of these areas please do get in touch with our Schools & Colleges Liaison Officer to find out more about how we can support your students:

If you are a UK student in Years 9 – 12 please look at our Outreach pages to see any upcoming opportunities that you can get involved with.

To request a visit or further information please email
