Information for Parents

Is someone in your family making choices about higher education? The information you have matters!

In a recent survey of 10,000 students, we found that 66% of young people said their family have the greatest influence on their decision about which direction to take after school.

As a parent, carer or family member, the information you have can help a student make the right choice for them.

At HeppSY, we work with students who are most at risk of missing out on higher education by providing them with impartial information and advice in order for them to make an informed choice.
