Progression scheme workshops

Progression scheme workshops are online webinars. These webinars are delivered by our Outreach and Recruitment team and provide a fantastic opportunity to become more informed about how to progress through the applicant journey (e.g. personal statement writing). The workshops offer you an opportunity to receive additional UCAS points towards your application. To receive these points you must be attentive in the webinar and complete the post-webinar task.

During and following your webinar, you will be given details of the post-webinar task, which you must complete and submit. This task will be assessed to ensure it has been completed to a high enough standard. Once your task has been assessed as meeting the required standards, we will mark you as having completed a progression scheme workshop.

However, please note, to receive your additional 8 UCAS point deduction, you will also need to attend an open day.

Book on for an upcoming Open Day.
