About Realising Opportunities

RO is a unique collaboration of leading research intensive universities working together to promote fair access to university and the professions. We support some of the country’s brightest 16-19 year olds through a structured programme of interventions designed to ensure they can be successful in their education and future career.

We aim to work with professionals, leading UK and international employers, and employer organisations to ensure our students are given up to date, dynamic and relevant information about professional careers.

Get Involved

You can get involved in supporting our aim through the following ways:

Ask the Expert

There’s no substitute for getting an expert’s view and who better to ask about a profession than someone currently doing the job! Feature as one of our monthly ‘experts’ and answer our students questions about your industry, your role and training routes into your career. We will collate all students’ questions for our expert and the number of questions can be agreed in advance.

National Student Conference

This national event brings RO students from across the country together for a day of skills development. It provides employers and employer organisations the opportunity to talk directly to our students about their industry either in our exhibition space or through the delivery of an interactive workshop.
