Top tips – learning opportunities
A lot can change in 5 or 6 years. If someone can’t do something now, that doesn’t mean they never will.
Don’t be rushed. Taking time to make good choices and get the right support pays off in the long run.
Don’t rule anything out. Instead, see if it could be possible given time and good support.
It can take a long time to sort out things like accommodation and transport. Be prepared.
Be proactive. Contact learning support services, ask questions and explore options.
Remember independent living and social skills. These are at least as important as academic ability for success.
