Introduction to Higher Education – Virtual recording

The team have developed a virtual Introduction to Higher Education talk for Years 7-11 that you are able to show within your school during assemblies, form time or via student/parental portal systems.

This session focuses on the journey from high school to University, introducing students to what University is all about, entry requirements, choice of courses and the difference between school and University.

To gain access to this virtual talk for your school, please contact the Education Liaison Officer responsible for your region, or email
