Parents’ guide to HE
With so many changes in university level study it is sometimes difficult for parents to keep up to date with what is happening. If your child is thinking of going to university we can help you navigate the different pathways of study available including Higher National Certificates and Foundation Degrees as well as informing you about fees, and what financial support is available.
Useful questions to ask
Once your child has decided what they want to study it’s worth exploring whether they will be better suited to a college or a university. Things to consider include location, size, accommodation, transport costs and academic support.
Ask about class sizes, class contact time, personal tutors, assessment methods and employability skills.
Our useful Parents’ guide to HE will help you through the maze of information, especially if this is your first contact with Higher Education.
