Information on how to find scholarships, grants and bursaries for university

To be used with Yr 12s and Yr 13s either as they start to consider their university options or as they are in the process of making their UCAS application. Working through this resource will help students understand what funding is available, how to identify what they might be eligible for and where to find it. Typically universities only promote the scholarships that they offer to their applicants, but there is a wide range of other funding available which students could benefit from.

Key Stage 4 Options

This is a series of activities aimed at starting the thinking process leading up to choosing subjects to study at KS4. Activities are for students to complete individually and to discuss with the class and at home with parents.

NEC Study Skills Guides: Academic essay writing

NEC Study Skills Guides: Academic essay writing

This free guide to academic essay writing includes practical activities and advice to help KS5 students develop the habits of effective, independent study. It is suitable for use with a group of students, or for students to work through by themselves to help them think through whether university is for them. When students reach the end of this guide, they will have a better understanding of what academic essay writing involves, know how to analyse an essay title, be able to brainstorm their ideas, understand the importance of having a clear sequence of ideas in their essay, have chosen an approach to taking notes that works for them, know what information to collect for recording the sources they have used when writing essays, have practised drawing up a reading list, and know what to include in their essay and what to leave out. Studying at uni or college can be different to how A level students are used to studying at school or college. Working in partnership with university admissions service UCAS, distance learning provider and education charity the National Extension College has developed a series of study skills guides to help students get a head start when they arrive at uni so they successfully make the transition to higher education. Other guides in the series: How to present an argument, Time management, Proofing and editing your work and Understanding and answering exam questions.
