Information for FE College Tutors
Mature students who do well in university are those that are best informed about what to expect of higher education before they come. This is why the Widening Access Team at Cardiff University is eager to work in partnership with our colleagues in the FE sector. Through an innovative programme called University Uncovered we demystify the university experience for prospective mature students. Through a combination of presentations, visits and developing an e-mentoring relationship with a current university mature student we help Access and Mature A-level students make informed choices about the next step and prepare for university life. University Uncovered is a flexible programme. Further Education Colleges can pick and chose the elements that best suit their individual college, elements that complement existing services.
Accompanied tours for individual class groups at intervals throughout the year. An opportunity for college students to visit the university campus, have a guided tour and get a flavour of university.
University staff and current mature students can visit further education colleges and talk to college students.
Talks on topics including
- How to choose the right university course?
- Writing a personal statement
- Preparing for an interview at university
- University finance
- What to expect from university?
Talks can be tailored to suit specific groups with particular needs.
