I’m standing at the entrance to the UCAS building. This is the organisation that, each year, has the important task of managing over 650,000 applications for higher education study in the UK. We know how important it is that students explore their options and make informed choices about their next steps in education and training. It’s a huge task.

So to help you refresh and extend your knowledge of what higher education offers and to enhance your ability to support your students to make their informed decisions, UCAS has designed this two week course. My name is Louise Evans, head of adviser experience at UCAS. I’m here to warmly welcome you to this course. I’ll be supporting you throughout the course together with experts and colleagues at UCAS and am very much looking forward to working with you.
