With expert contributions from over 35 providers of higher education, the Guide provides the essential facts about the admissions process and highlights the thoroughgoing, professional liaison and support on offer that school and college staff need to know in order to enable your pupils and students to make the right choices.
This Guide sets out the necessary underpinning knowledge for their decision-making and application and describes how best to take up the diverse offers of events and workshops to support applications. The Guide also highlights the extra help available from school liaison and outreach staff for pupils and students who might be socially disadvantaged, disabled or facing other barriers to success and think that "university is not for me." As examples, this help may include specifically targeted events, and bespoke bursaries for care leavers.
At a time when the sheer amount of choice can be bewildering and the widespread effects of the pandemic confusing, the information and advice in this comprehensive Guide sets out how you can work with universities and colleges and do your best for all your students.
