Teachers and careers advisers conference

Our last biennial teachers and careers advisers conference took place on 11 July 2014. This free one-day event included presentations from UCAS and the Higher Education Careers Service Unit, as well as the chance to visit a number of our Academic Schools. Visit our conference page to find out more about the day and sign up to receive updates on our next conference.

Widening Access

We run a range of programmes and activities to raise aspirations and promote higher education to traditionally under-represented groups in Wales. These are offered to students in years 11 to 13.

Higher Education Roadshow

We work in partnership with Cardiff Metropolitan University (formerly UWIC) to raise awareness and promote the benefits of higher education through HE Roadshow assemblies, which are delivered to year 10 and 11 students in Welsh schools.
