What we do

Deciding what level to study in higher education, which course to enrol on and what subject to study are all major choices and decisions to make.

Our dedicated Transitions and Outreach team are here to help. The team offer a wide range of workshops and events to support you and your school or college, including:

We can attend one of your higher education or careers fairs.

Our experienced team can offer a wide range of talks and workshops to support students applying to higher education.

Throughout the year, a member of our team can visit you to discuss how we can work together to deliver themed activities for higher education and help your students to find the right next step for them.

Students can get an insight into studying in higher education with one of our taster days, where they’ll have the chance to meet our current students, and academic and support staff, and ask questions to learn all about it.

If you would like any further information regarding any of the above, please contact our Admissions Team, ucenadmissions@ucenmcr.tmc.ac.uk
