  • Progression on to Higher Education & the UCAS application process

    The entry requirements vary for our higher education courses, so it is advisable to check the specific requirements for your course carefully. Alternatively, you can contact our information, advice and guidance staff directly if, for example, you are a mature student unsure about your qualifications or you require other support.

    Our Advice and Progression Co-ordinators will be happy to help you find the most appropriate route into higher education. You may be getting ready to complete your Level 3 programme, looking to progress your career or simply deciding, later in life, to pursue higher education qualifications. Don’t worry - we will assist you wherever possible.

    We can advise you how to approach your personal statement and we will liaise with your personal tutor and you to ensure your application has been checked. We can also signpost you in relation to HE funding and loans.
