Higher Education – Information, Advice and Guidance

Guiding students (and parents) through the transition to higher education can be challenging. For selected schools and colleges in the UK and Northern Ireland, we have an experienced team who attend school careers and HE events and deliver talks and workshops on a wide range of university topics, including choosing courses, how to apply, finance and student life.

Each member of the team covers a specific region and works with their schools and colleges to provide tailored in-school activities that are suitable for different age groups and audiences.

Study Skills Workshops

Suitable for smaller groups (15-30 students), our study skills sessions cover topics such as critical thinking and writing, note taking and research skills and are particularly helpful to students working towards the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

UCAS Conventions

Between March and July we attend many of the Higher Education conventions organised by UCAS. To see when we are in your area, please download the schedule from the right-hand menu (which will be available in late 2017 for the 2018 conventions).
