A complimentary course for your students

UCAS has developed another free online course which complements this adviser course. It is designed for young people in school, to help them discover more about their post-18 options and pathways, and to explore the wide range of subjects and opportunities offered in higher education.

Smart Choices: Broadening Your Horizons

Smart Choices: Broadening Your Horizons opens for students to register. This 2-week course starts on 26th September 2016.

Why not encourage your students to register?
They will gain insight into choosing subjects and the different pathways that can be taken after school, through higher education or other forms of training to successfully launch their chosen career. They will find useful tips from students and hear from admissions tutors on what skills they look for in candidates and the key things that young people need to consider in order to make the right decision for university (or vocation).
