We understand the vital role that parents, guardians and carers play in supporting and guiding a child or ward through the application process and on to studying at university. We hope to give you all the information you need to best support and advise them on this exciting journey.

Getting into university

Researching, applying and starting at university is an exciting time for both your child and yourself.  However, looking for a university and a course which is suitable can also be a difficult and daunting experience.  Our Admission Counsellors will help you through the process of choosing a university  and making an informed decision with your son or daughter.

We welcome parents and carers to accompany prospective students to our open events. It’s important for a young person to have the support of someone who can give a second opinion and think of any additional questions.

Got a place – what next?

Once your son or daughter has secured a place, you can breathe a big sigh of relief. But the planning is not over just yet!

You have to consider things such as:

  • Finance and Scholarship
  • Accommodation
