Information for schools

UCW can visit schools and colleges to help pupils prepare for a future in Higher Education. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff and students will visit at a time that fits around the school day, and while most of the activities we offer are designed for students, we are also happy to talk to teachers and parents to help them support pupil progression from Further to Higher Education.

All of our activities for schools are customisable, but typical sessions include:

At UCW we specialise in the provision of Foundation Degrees. These are an increasingly popular way of demonstrating academic knowledge while also learning the ‘real world’ skills required by employers. Foundation Degrees usually take two years to complete and are stand-alone degrees (FdA, FdSc etc.), but they can also be ‘topped up’ to Full Honours (BA, BSc etc.) with an extra year of study. We can come and talk to your pupils and teachers about the pros and cons of studying for a Foundation Degree compared with the other options in Higher Education.
