Our school and college liaison teams run activities for students to help with their transition to higher education. They support students, parents and teachers with the university application process.

Why City?

  • We have three specialist school and college liaison teams who work with primary schools through to Year 13 and international students based in the UK
  • Our school and college liaison teams are made up of experienced staff who have in-depth knowledge on helping students to prepare for university
  • We support teachers and advisors through training and hold a unique teachers and advisors day once a year
  • Activities with universities meet Gatsby Benchmark 7 if you are looking for ways to meet this benchmark. Some sessions delivered by universities may also assist with Benchmark 2 and 4.

Support at every stage

Our schools and college liaison teams offer expert guidance and support from the start of the university application process through to applying for student finance.

We ensure teachers and advisers are kept up to date with monthly newsletters. Our teams also provide information on running events in schools, relevant sector information, advice on clearing, student finance and important policy updates. You can also find out about events and taster days that we run at City, University of London.
