Accessing higher education

In these videos, student carers share their journeys into higher education. Many carers see university as not being an option for them, so outreach and widening participation activity make all the difference to them accessing higher education. Some will not achieve the grades they need because of the impact their caring role has had on school so may benefit from alternative routes into higher education, such as college or apprenticeships. Student carers are also at higher risk of dropping out once they get to university (Sempik and Becker, 2014) so can benefit from additional support to manage their caring role while studying.
