Getting Started Series
The Getting Started Series is all about helping you get the uni experience you want. We’ve designed each session full of up-to-the-minute advice, tips and guidance.
Each week we’ll cover a different topic, from writing a great personal statement, to completing a UCAS application, to the different ways you’ll learn at university – and more.
Join us for as many sessions as you like. They’re interactive, so you can ask any questions you have, including general queries about university. Or you can simply listen in.
You’ll be entered into our free competition to win a university starter pack. We’ll also share additional resources with you, to access online whenever you like.

There’s a lot going on in year 12. Assignments and deadlines are looming. There’s pressure to start thinking about your career. Your UCAS application may be the last thing on your mind.

Once you’ve decided where and what to study, completing your application is pretty simple – until it comes to writing your Personal Statement. This short session covers tips on how to start and what to include – so you can write a standout personal statement that’s well-structured, and covers all your reasons for applying.
Nothing beats visiting a university or UCAS exhibition in person. But these events are now coming to you online. Like the real thing, they’re still a great way to get the information you need – if you’re prepared. Find out what to expect and how to get ready for them, so you don’t miss any important opportunities and get the answers you want.
There's plenty to think about when you start university – and preparing properly for such a big moment in your life can make all the difference. This webinar explores the student support services you can use, what it’s like to live in halls and how to settle into life at uni. You’ll also hear from our current students, get their helpful advice and have the chance to ask them your questions.
