Parents and guardians

Parents and guardians play a key role in helping young people make decisions about their future and we want to give you all the information you need so you can support them to make informed choices about university.

We believe that the most effective method of navigating the options is to carry out as much research as possible, ask as many questions as you can and consider any opportunity presented. To help with these decisions we have created this guide which discusses the key elements involved in making a university application.
