Free resources from universities in Wales to help you take your first steps into higher education.

University Ready - About EN


So, you’re heading to university! It’s an exciting prospect, but you’re sure to have questions about what’s in store – especially in these uncertain times.

That’s why we have pulled together content from all the universities in Wales, so you are just a click away from details of the support and information you need to help make your time in higher education rewarding, fun, and safe. University Ready is your easy-to-use hub, whether you’re about to move on to university-level education, or if you’re supporting someone who is – perhaps as a parent, teacher, carer or adviser.

You can search by topic – like study skills, wellbeing and mental health, or student life – by institution, and by subject area, so you can be sure of getting straight to the resources you need.

It doesn’t matter which university you’re heading to, or even if you haven’t made your mind up yet. You can use all of the resources on our hub to find out more about university life. Take a look around and explore all of the different support on offer.

Moving on to university is a big step, but it needn’t be a scary one. University Ready will help you prepare for university with confidence, answering your questions and giving you a clearer picture of what your new life in higher education might look like.
