Progression scheme Update

 

We are aware that some students, particularly Access to HE students / Adult Learners, have been unable to attend our Autumn Open Days and that this has caused concern for students eligible for our Progression Scheme as, without attending an open day, they cannot benefit from the maximum reduced offer of 16 UCAS points below our standard tariff.

 

To resolve this issue and ensure these students can benefit fully from the Progression Scheme, we have developed some new Progression Scheme Virtual Open Day webinars These sessions will be run by our Outreach and Recruitment Team and will look ahead to the remainder of this academic year and the application cycle; providing students with advice on how to be prepared for university.

 

Support services available at university and different aspects of university life (e.g. accommodation, student finance, sports & societies) will also be covered. This event will conclude with a Q&A panel with some of our current students, who will share their experiences of university life.

 

Students eligible for the Progression Scheme, who have been unable to attend an open day can book onto the New Progression Scheme Virtual Open Days HERE

 

The Progression Scheme enables our Admissions Team to take into consideration several contextual factors when assessing applications and is available to the following groups of applicants:

  • Adult learners (21 or over on the first day of term)
  • Refugee/Asylum Seekers
  • Care Leavers or previously looked after
  • Estranged students
