Information for parents and carers

​​​​​Choosing which course, university and where in the country to study can be a challenging task for you, as well as your child. Check out our top tips to helping you both make the right choices.

The decision about which course to study and what university to study at will naturally prompt plenty of questions from students as well as parents and carers. So, we’ve put together lots of information which we hope you will find helpful when beginning the exciting journey to university, including a list of top tips for students each written by a member of the Outreach Team.

The Outreach Team have also created a resources page, where you can access lots of helpful material, including requesting the GROWS Supporting Future Choices guide to higher education which is designed for parents and guardians.

If you have any further questions then feel free to get in touch with the Outreach Team on our meet the team page.

You can also sign up to our parents’ and carers’ mailing list to receive newsletters throughout the year including advice and guidance regarding key topics relating to higher education. Register your interest now.
