Ambition Nottingham 16-18 Programme (Deadline 3 Dec)

Our Ambition Nottingham programme is a free two-year scheme for all Year 12/ Year 1 vocational students from anywhere in the UK. 

Supporting progression and application to a university of your choice; we offer support and guidance to students through various online sessions, which include: 

  • Subject insight sessions with university academics 
  • Q&As with current students 
  • Advice and guidance on university selection processes 

We are now also offering the opportunity to attend our Open Days as a VIP with extra activities and support. The programme runs from January of Year 12 (or Year 1 of a vocational course) and throughout Year 13 (Year 2).

Programme benefits

In addition to this advice and guidance, some participants who meet additional criteria could also be eligible for additional benefits should they apply to the University of Nottingham. 

Students will hear whether they have been successful in gaining a place on the programme by the end of December, they will also then be allocated to Tier 1 or Tier 2. Tier 1 students may be eligible for the additional benefits of an enhanced contextual offer should they apply to the University of Nottingham, and the Nottingham Potential bursary should they become a student with us (restrictions apply so please visit our website for further details). All students will have the same access to sessions in the first year of the programme and have access to our online resources hub.
