Advice from parents and students

“It is important that your child does as much of the application process independently so that they build confidence and are a central part of their decisions for their own future. What’s important is that you, as a parent, are there along the way and are supportive during important decision to ensure that your child is ready for the next step.”

“I remember offering support to my children with their applications - this was my contribution as a parent. It was important to me that they chose their course and university independently and my role was to encourage them to attend open days and help with the application form where I could.”
