How UniTasterDays Will Help - Letter / Email for Schools to share with parents and guardians

The transition from school to higher education is a significant step for students and their families. Choosing the right university is a decision that impacts future career paths and personal growth. Recognising this, UniTasterDays empowers students to explore their options thoroughly so they can make informed decisions about their future.

UniTasterDays is an innovative online platform that provides detailed information about university and college open days, tailored events, and virtual tours across the United Kingdom. It offers a user-friendly interface that allows students and their families to search for events based on subject interest, location, and university.

Benefits of UniTasterDays for parents:

We know that navigating the higher education space can be daunting for parents too, especially if this is your first child to go onto university. That’s why we collaborated with HELOA to help you, as a parent or guardian, to support your young person with their higher education decisions by creating The Parents' Guide to University. Editorial has been provided by over 40 colleagues at universities throughout the UK. On topics including student finance, university applications, university events, student wellbeing and more.

We believe that this tool will be instrumental in helping our students explore their higher education options more effectively and making choices that align with their long-term goals. We encourage you and your child to start exploring UniTasterDays, familiarising yourselves with its features and the opportunities it presents.
