Higher Education Roadshow

A collaborative project with Cardiff Metropolitan University, the Higher Education Roadshow offers a variety of aspiration-raising talks and workshops to students in years 9-11 in schools throughout Wales.

The project primarily targets areas where there are low progression rates to higher education, and focuses on helping students to reach their potential, as well as demystifying the university experience through overcoming common misconceptions.

  • Delivers over 170 talks each year
  • Reaches over 20,000 pupils
  • Organises regional weeks in North, Mid and West Wales

Our most popular talks include:

  • What is higher education?
  • Making the right choices for GCSEs
  • Student life and employability skills
  • Study skills and revision
  • Preparing for sixth-form/college
