University Information Evening

We know that there is a lot to think about if your child is planning on going to university, but there are lots of resources available to help you with the application journey.

At our recent Parents University Information Evening, our Dean of Higher Education and external speakers such as Higher Horizons and Student Finance England shared valuable information about applying to university, the benefits of gaining a degree and the funding options available.

If you couldn’t make the event, or if you want to catch up with anything from the evening, you can watch all the presentations and watch the full recording at: Parents University Information Evening
