Guide for Parents

When the time comes for your son or daughter to start university, it’s a proud moment and represents a significant milestone in their lives.

Guide for ParentsAs they make the move into higher education, there are lots of preparations to be made, decisions to be taken and deadlines to be met.

We recognise that as a parent or guardian, you will want to provide as much support as possible as your son or daughter searches for a suitable course, chooses where to study, and identifies a potential career path.

These pages are designed to assist you in helping your son or daughter navigate this process successfully, ensuring that they reach an informed decision as they choose a course and university and apply through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).

You can also get practical advice on how to help your son or daughter prepare for university with our checklist of the things they need to do after submitting their application, as well as a calendar of key dates.

We hope this information will prove useful in enabling you to offer advice and support to your son or daughter as they embark on their student journey.
