Advancing Access

The University of Leeds is a member of Advancing Access – an initiative of the 24 Russell Group universities – which provides free CPD to teachers and advisors in schools and colleges.

Advancing Access offers a range of resources, online and in-person events to support staff whose role involves guiding young learners in their post-16 choices and university decisions.

  • Supporting students to make choices at age 16
  • Supporting students to make choices at age 18
  • Supporting students to write personal statements
  • Writing effective UCAS references
  • Understanding contextual admissions processes
  • Preparing students for interviews and admissions tests
