Let us take your parents/carers on a whistle-stop tour of University, all the way from Education to Employment. This quick guide will provide key dates and information about the research and application process for UCAS to support their young person at home. Ideal for sixth form/college open evenings.

Covering common queries and providing all the key information, parents leave the session up to date with the current application process for university and with their questions answered, as well as understanding the importance of researching and visiting universities pre-application. The team will cover the typical course structures and some of the most popular options, as well as being available to help answer any more specific queries. We’ll also cover the non-academic side of university including sports clubs, societies and social life.

Learning Outcomes

  • To inform parents about the application process to both Student Finance and UCAS, and understand the support available.
  • Provide information about the course structure at university.
  • Provide information about non-academic activities at university i.e. Societies.
