Information leaflets

Parents' guide to higher education

Students clearly benefit from the support of their parents/guardians and other family members as they make the transition into higher education, particularly if they are about to leave home for the first time. We also understand that not every family has personal experience of higher education and doesn’t always know what to expect. Our Parents' guide to higher education can hopefully help answer some of these questions. You can view and download the Parent Guide 2020.


Our accommodation team are on hand throughout the year to answer any questions you may have. You can email them at: . We also have a handy Accommodation Booklet that you can download.
