Outreach

Progression to Higher Education

The Student Recruitment Team offers outreach talks and workshops to highlight the benefits and opportunities that Higher Education can bring to your students. We offer aspiration-raising support in school and at the University. If you would like to arrange a session, please contact us at partnerships.rao@coventry.ac.uk.

 

Talks in School/College

Why HE?

Let’s start at the very beginning. This talk introduces Higher Education and the benefits of progression to university. It also covers the key points for students to consider when deciding on their next steps.

Why Coventry University?

Everything the University has to offer your students, both inside and outside the lecture theatre, entry requirements, and graduate opportunities for Coventry University students.

Researching Universities and Courses

Now that your students have decided university is for them, this talk will provide them with the tools to make the right decisions about universities and courses. The session also tests your students’ knowledge on where certain universities are in the UK, gives examples of degrees that they can study and includes a celebrity degree quiz.

(Also available as a workshop)

Perfecting your Personal Statement

A critical part of the application process, this talk will give your students the support they need including tips for success, as well as highlighting the pitfalls to avoid.

Student Finance

This talk will show your students what financial support is available to them. Focusing on fees, loans, scholarships and bursaries, they will understand the importance of student finance without being scared by the prospect of organising it.

Student Life

Delivered by our Student Ambassadors, current Coventry University students, this talk will give your students a real insight into what lies ahead at university. Introducing the highs and lows of being a student and explaining why our students decided Coventry was the university for them.

Showcasing your ‘Design DNA’ – Portfolio advice and guidance for Art and Design Students

This talk helps students to prepare their work so that it is at its very best before a university interview. Selecting and styling work gives interviewers a real insight into how students view their skills and work as much as the work itself.

Workshops

All workshops are designed to last for 1 hour and will give students an in-depth interactive session to support their progression to Higher Education.

Researching Universities and Courses

This workshop is designed to start your students on the journey to deciding on a course and university, including which subjects they can study at university based on their current Level 3 subjects. It also includes information on how long it will take to travel to each university.

This session requires a computer room for online research.

Budgeting Workshop

As a university student, managing your finances is often a difficult task. This workshop provides hints and tips on budgeting for the years ahead.
