Further and Higher Education
Advise your pupils to explore all their options and look at a number of courses available at different colleges and universities before making a decision.This will be time consuming, but encourage them to be patient and communicate the importance of exploring options.
Pupils need to consider:
Entry requirements to courses – a number of courses will look for specific subjects and grades
Curriculum content – look at the subjects covered and the flexibility options
Destination – where is the university/college based?This opens up a huge relocation consideration for the pupil and could incur significant costs , in some cases full course and accommodation costs.
There are helpful sources online for pupils to explore their further and higher education options.
