If you’re looking to continue your education after UTC Warrington, then you may well be thinking of going on to University. This could give you an employability advantage too, especially if you’re going to be studying an industry-relevant subject with high technical content. Not all, but lots of employers these days are looking for a degree-level education so a few years at University could very well get your foot in quite a few more doors in the future.

Understanding our students and their future career aspirations are a priority for us at UTC Warrington. We work closely with students on an individual basis to find the right next steps for them.

University is an aspiration for many students who want to study high quality STEM degrees. We work closely with Manchester Metropolitan University, our Higher Education partner, as well as other universities who offer a variety of specialist courses. You can find out more about MMU here.

We know that for many, going to University is a big, personal, step and that’s something we’re really keen to help make a seamless process. Although we’re committed to high quality learning and passing exams, we’ll ensure that you grow as the individual you are as well. Many employers take personal growth into account when they’re recruiting and so we’ll actively encourage you to take part in a range of extra-curricular opportunities and professional qualifications which will hone some essential life skills and enable you to work with a wide range of people in the future. And make moving on to University and making new friends a whole lot less daunting.

Support is given to students who would like to apply to university. More can be found on the UCAS website regarding universities, their courses and entry requirements. Universities will advertise their degree on their websites and UCAS. Throughout the year, there will also be the opportunity to visit universities for their open days and recruitment events.

We understand that UCAS can be both stressful for students and parents. We offer UCAS tutorials throughout the year to support the application process.
