Working with Universities
We work with a number of local universities to support applications and ensure students’ application are the most successful they can be.
One of the programmes we work with is called Discover US with the University of Sheffield. On this programme, each students receive mentoring and support from the University over their two years in Sixth Form – they may also receive a reduced offer if they successfully complete all elements of the programme.
You can find out more about the programme here:
The National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP)
Higher education outreach activities are aimed at showing students the higher education opportunities available at college and university, and how completing a higher education course can benefit their job prospects. The activities may also improve students' attainment. The activities are being run by HeppSY, Hepp, Sheffield Hallam University, The University of Sheffield and other approved partners.
