Support for Yr 13 Students
Higher Education (18+) is for students who have an interest in attending University or college to follow an undergraduate degree course or diploma.
The online portal to Higher Education in the UK is UCAS.
Students can search the range of courses delivered at University easily through their search tool. Students can look for a subject they want to study at Degree level or by location (the University they want to attend).
The “Informed Choices” booklet from the Russell Group (the term for a group of universities with a shared focus on research and a reputation for academic achievement) is designed to support those students whose families have not previously studied at University level. The booklet allows them the opportunity to find relevant information that can help them make the best decisions based on their interests and career pathway choices.
A number of our students may choose not to attend University but to follow other routes in their career.
www.notgoingtouni.com is a website offering information on apprenticeships and other forms of education (alongside other opportunities) available to those students who choose not to move onto Higher Education). The website allows students to search for apprenticeships at Intermediate, Higher and Advanced levels within all employment sectors. Students can also search freely within the website or look into the Advice Centre / Be Inspired tabs to find a variety of activities they might not have previously considered.
