Welcome to our Parents Pages. Whether it’s advice and tips from parents whose son or daughter are already at uni, guidance on Clearing and student support, or details on how you can play a supportive role applying and preparing for university, we want to answer the questions that are most important to you.

Throughout these pages and in our Parents Magazine there are references to your child as 'son or daughter'. This is because we feel 'child' is not reflective of someone who is at the age of considering university. As an inclusive institution we recognise all genders and those who identify as none.

University is ideal in terms of preparing your son or daughter for leaving home. They get an opportunity to experience being independent.
