Helpful hints, tips and links so you and your student are prepared for starting university

Information for Parents and Supporters

As parents and supporters, we know that you will be as equally invested in your student’s education as they are. You may have attended our Open Days, spoken to staff and students, and helped with applications. Now they are coming here, you will be starting to think about all the preparation that's involved too.

Here you will find information about starting university. It is important that your student reads these pages themselves, so they understand and are prepared for joining our College community.

On these pages you will find some helpful hints, tips and links so that you and your student are prepared in advance, which we hope will start helpful conversations in advance of, and during, their student journey.
