Events and resources for secondary schools

We co-ordinate a varied schedule of activities throughout the year to give students an insight into what it's like to study at a research-led university.

We also aim to increase access to the opportunities offered at university and support those who are considering making an application.

Universities and Colleges Admissions Services (UCAS)

UCAS administers all of the applications to higher education courses in the UK. The UCAS website offers guidance and advice on higher education courses for students, careers advisers, parents and carers. Students can use the course search to browse and filter courses at universities across the country.

Student Finance

  • Gov.uk gives detailed information about all aspects of student finance and is also the site through which finance applications are made. The finance calculator tool is also really helpful for getting an idea of how much money you might be entitled to for living costs whilst at university.
  • Money Saving Expert has a whole section on the student finance system from the perspective of an independent financial adviser.
  • The Student Loan Repayment website explains how students loans are repaid after university.
  • Students thinking of studying an NHS funded course or social work course will also need to look at the NHS website.

Schools Membership Scheme

Our Schools Membership scheme launched in 2015 to create a network of schools, sixth-forms and colleges across the UK and around the world. By identifying the schools, we work closely with each year, we are better able to allocate our resources, and are proud to offer our partner schools a range of exclusive benefits.
