What we offer

We work in partnership with schools and colleges across the UK to provide your students with information about a range of topics including the UCAS application process, student finance, personal statements and student life. All of our activities are provided free of charge and are subject to availability. 

Always lovely to welcome Will to our college. He has such a great rapport with our students and explains things so well. The students had so many questions for him and he answered them all brilliantly!
