Whilst at Weston College you can access a range of support to help you with your application for university. Throughout your level 3 programme you will participate in a series of tutorials including: an introduction to higher education and student finance; registering on UCAS and how to write a personal statement.
You can also access 1:1 information, advice and guidance appointments at any level to support with:
- Researching your options

- Writing your personal statement
- Understanding and applying for student finance
Appointments can be made at all of our main campuses.
To enable parents/carers to support with the university and student finance applications, information evenings are held each year to provide the necessary information. Parents/carers of level 3, year one learners are invited to attend a Higher Education Information Evening which covers the benefits of higher education, student finance and alternative progression routes. In year 2 a targeted Student Finance Information Evening is held prior to student finance applications opening.
When you enrol as a Weston College learner you will have access to a wide range of information and resources through our online careers library - Careers Advice Team SharePoint. This is regularly updated and a go-to when thinking about your next steps.
