IntoUniversity Supplementary Schools Programme
Our Programme
Higher Education in FOCUS

The Higher Education in FOCUS programme is a package of aspirational learning sessions that have been designed for supplementary school students. Working in partnership with universities our programme offers information, advice and the development of skills that promote success.

The Higher Education in FOCUS programme is available for students aged between 7 and 18 and can be delivered in one full day, or over two half days.

What does the programme involve?


The Higher Education in FOCUS programme involves a day trip to a university local to your supplementary school. The day is lead by experienced IntoUniversity staff members and all costs for the visit are covered by IntoUniversity. When at the university, students undertake the following aspirational workshops:

'What is a University?'

In this workshop students explore the benefits of going to university and learn in depth about the different aspects of student life, including accommodation, courses, student finance and clubs & societies.

'University Tree'

Students work in groups to focus on their own journeys through education: from school to university and beyond. Their ambitions are recorded on ‘leaves’ for them to take away with them.

Campus Tour

University representatives lead students, staff and parents on a tour of the university campus, allowing students to get a real feel for university life.

Graduation Ceremony

The day culminates in a mini graduation ceremony where students get to present their ‘leaves’ and celebrate the work that they have completed over the programme. Family and friends are invited to attend the event, where students receive a certificate of completion.


Teachers' Toolkit training

This training session provides supplementary school teachers and parents with the information that they need to support their students and children as they progress to Higher Education. Teachers and parents are introduced to the online Teachers’ Toolkit and how to use it. Topics taught include student finance, UCAS, personal statements and how to support your students and children in choosing the best course for them.
