Preparing for uni
Bianca Ramirez, current student
‘My advice to parents is to understand what your child's course has to offer and where it will take them. If they know you are supporting them through their journey, it will make figuring out uni life much easier for them.’
We understand that helping your child choose a course or career path to follow, and settle into university is much easier if you have access to the right information.
