Monitors and tv screens showing our videosThe Student Recruitment and Outreach team have developed a number of resources to support Parents, Teachers and Careers Advisers.


We have produced a number of short films for students in Years 12 and 13, designed to give them important information on the UCAS process, choosing a university and preparing for life as an undergraduate. These can be very useful resources both for pupils doing independent research and also within the classroom.

The following topics show just a sample of what is available. All our videos, which include interviews with students, academics, admissions tutors and alumni, are currently available on the University’s YouTube channel.

Study skills for sixth form students website

The Skills 4 Uni interactive website enables sixth form students to develop the skills needed at university. The website provides tips, advice, stimulating activities and materials.

Tips4Uni interactive e-learning module

 Tips4Uni supports our work in schools and colleges and covers all the areas we offer talks on including how to choose a university, student life and personal statements. This resource can either be used as part of a lesson in school or can be used by students independently as they prepare for higher education. Please note JavaScript must be enabled in the browser for the course to launch
