About us

The Devon Collaborative Outreach Network (DCON)


The decisions we make during our formative years can impact significantly on our futures. With this in mind, it is essential that young people and those that influence them are provided with accessible information so they become empowered to make choices that can improve their life chances.

Outreach events and activities aim to provide opportunities for young people to learn of the value of higher education, while at the same time, exposing them to the diverse range of programmes that are offered in their region. In addition, a range of talks are available to inform potential students of routes into higher education and provide information on how they can fund their studies. Events and talks also offer an insight into the life of a university student. 

Plymouth University, in partnership with the University of St Mark & St John, Plymouth College of Art, and other partner colleges aims to raise awareness of higher education by promoting outreach events to schools and colleges in the Devon region.
