This session provides an in-depth exploration of options available for current students facing their future choices. Interactive activities such as ‘match the uni’ and ‘true or false’, as well as an activity surrounding UCAS applications are included. Paired with up-to-date information, this helps students to develop their knowledge surrounding higher education. This session uses a worksheet alongside the video.

Students can find out more about which courses and careers require certain qualifications, as well as where different degrees could take them, considering both what they might study at university and where that could lead in terms of their future careers. Looking at the transferable skills students already have, as well as the skills they gain by studying at Higher Education level, we’ll think about the routes into Higher Education, studying at university, and take a little look at student life.

Learning Outcomes

  • Explore routes into HE
  • Develop self-awareness of skills
  • Introduce and inform students about the application process, and explore and guide their choices within education
  • Provide an overview of student life at university
