Insight into university
We have an insightful honest interview with some University Freshers about what it was like starting University in September last year.
They discuss everything from, how Covid-19 impacted their course, student finance, plans for after their undergraduate degree and even how they did washing wrong when they moved into student accommodation
Find out more about studying locally
Humber Outreach Programme has interviewed some University students with honest and real answers about choosing to study locally. Talking everything from student finance, student accommodation, reasons for staying close to home when studying and studying while covid-19 is happening. This interview will give you insights into how students are finding life at University over the last year and why they have chosen to stay closer to home.

Our student ambassadors and careers advisors Sanna and Amy talk you though the common myths that surround higher education.
Busting Myths such as; If I go to University, I won’t make any friends. You have to be rich to go to University. University is only for people who are academic. You have to move away from home to study at University.

The Pay Index will answer these questions with reports so you can really see the correct pathways for your career. Making the best choice for your future is complex but The Pay Index can really help you work this out. Make sure you check out the video that shows how this works.
