What is Parent/Carer HE Week?
We’re providing a program of free, online sessions (via Zoom), throughout the week that will help you understand more about university, as well as alternatives routes into higher education (such as higher and degree apprenticeships).
We also have a session dedicated to student finance and budgeting. We finish the week with a Q & A session with GM Higher staff and student ambassadors.
Why Should I Attend?
Whatever your starting point, these sessions will provide you with the information, advice, and guidance you need about higher education. We’ll try to explain things clearly and show you where to find the best sources of information.
These sessions will feature different speakers and give you plenty of time to ask the questions that matter to you. What’s more, you can stay in touch with us afterwards via our Ask Us messaging platform.
