What is Future Quest?

Future Quest is the Bristol area partnership of universities and colleges, working together with the local authorities, the combined authority, employers and other organisations to develop and deliver the Office for Students Funded uni connect Programme, supporting young people's progression into higher education

Future Quest delivers a targeted higher education outreach programme to schools with students in identified postcode areas, where higher education progression is lower than might be predicted from GCSE results. The programme aims to equip young people with the knowledge of higher education and potential future pathways, the understanding of skill requirements for study and future life, and the ability to develop self reflection, self awareness and self belief.

Future Quest provides an outreach hub which enables students, parents and carers and school staff to access information and opportunities, as well as creating an axis for sustainable partnership working to shape outreach across the region.

Future Quest cultivates strength through collaboration.
