eBook to help demystify university choices

There are a lot of resources out there trying to do the same thing – advise students on university – but how many are doing it especially for their teachers, who often have to juggle classes as well as advisory responsibilities?

Whether you’re an education professional, teacher or a parent, there’s so much to think about when guiding students through the process of considering higher education, researching institutions, and applying to university.

Though UCAS ensures the process is clear-cut, every pupil has individual ambitions, needs and circumstances so the real key is for those students to individually work through the big decisions for themselves.

So how would you, as a dedicated teacher or adviser, like access to a new ebook that does much of the legwork for you? With a one-click download, and for free, you can benefit from 10 concise and straightforward, no-nonsense chapters that will help you to help your students tread the path toward higher education with the right knowledge in their knapsack.

It’s for those in a position of giving advice and guidance to students thinking about which university to choose, what to study, and what life might be like when they get there.The colourful ebook works alongside UEA’s online UniBox resource site, featuring information on how to:

  • Advise students on how to make the right choice for their future
  • Help students properly research and shortlist opportunities

Claire Petley, Head of UK/EU Recruitment and Outreach at UEA, said: “Even if you have years of experience in guiding students through university applications, the ebook could be just the primer you and your pupils need. The ebook is an easy to digest resource, but the advice it contains could make a lifetime’s difference.”

She added: “With the UCAS deadline looming in 2016, pupils will want to be sure about which university is right for them and what subject they should take. But they and their parents will have many more questions: How far is their campus from home? Are they part of the Russell Group? Where do they rank in the league tables? I’m proud to say that this ebook is designed especially to help those who influence students to prepare the best answers.”
