Are you preparing your students for life after school/college?

To help you support and guide them, we’ve developed this toolkit to communicate key information about higher education and the UCAS application process.

It contains a wide range of resources which can be used together or as part of a programme, as well as materials to share with teachers and parents.


Information for you

  • Note to advisers – this document introduces the toolkit and explains all the elements, so it will be useful for you to download and refer to. 

Information for students

  • Making the right choices presentation (2.81 MB) – for Years 12 and 13 students. This presentation gives an overview of the opportunities available and highlights future options, including the benefits of higher education.
  • Mythbusters handout – there are many myths about higher education. We’ve dispelled the top ones in this useful handout.
  • Applying to UCAS presentation – for students who have decided they want to apply to higher education. It highlights where to start, key dates, and also gives an overview of the application and tracking process.
  • Application process handout (439.74 KB)– we’ve broken the higher education application process down into three simple steps in this handout, including when we need to receive applications.


Information for parents

UCAS parents' evening presentation (4.02 MB) – we know parents look to you for information on the UCAS process. That’s why we’ve developed a presentation you can give to them at open days or parent evenings. It illustrates the benefits of higher education, outlines the application process, and advises parents on what they can do to support their son or daughter.


Information for teachers

What teachers need to know presentation – it’s important that teachers in your school are giving students consistent advice. This presentation is designed to be given at the start of the application cycle to help you keep colleagues up-to-date on the UCAS process.
