We are the Schools and Colleges Liaison Team and we work with schools and colleges across the UK to inform and inspire your learners about Higher Education. With this in mind, we are committed to ensuring teachers and advisers feel supported and well-equipped in providing up-to-date information.

We offer a wide range of tailored activities both on and off campus to match your learners’ specific needs. We are here to help them fulfill their potential by raising aspirations, and building on their abilities and experiences.

Access to Higher Education

We currently offer bespoke Access to Higher Education talks that give you all the facts that you need to apply to university. Our programme covers all aspects of the application process including course choices, UCAS, personal statements, finance and interview skills.

Sessions can be delivered to fit in with your timetable, or, alternatively, all sessions can be delivered consecutively at one of our Taster Days on-campus.

Taster Days

Our Taster Days are aimed at students in Years 11, 12 and 13 and give them a great idea of what university life is like. Students will have a welcome session and a campus tour delivered by one of our current students, giving them the best introduction possible to Higher Education in general and our university. We can offer a full programme of subject masterclasses and interactive talks too.

Taster Days provide your students the perfect opportunity to ask questions and discuss any concerns they may have before applying to university. Alternatively, we always welcome group visits at our Open Days from schools and colleges.
