ReachUni is a three-step programme that gives school and college students the support, information advice and guidance (IAG) needed to reach a university that’s well suited to them. The programme and suite of resources help students become university-ready, including making a great application to target universities:

  • ReachUni takes students through three essential steps: explore, stretch and apply
  • Each step is broken down into bite-sized modules, which students can work through on their own or with help from teachers
  • Students can follow the steps in order, skip ahead if already confident with the earlier steps, or dip in and out of resources to use them at different points
