UNIVERSITY MADE SIMPLE

Explore our basic guides and videos below to help your child make informed choices about their future.

At Northumbria we recognise that university is a big step for parents as well as students. From choosing a course and making an application, to student finance and living away from home - there’s a lot of information to take in and you’re bound to have some questions. But don’t worry, we’re here to help. We want to make things as simple as possible, so we’ve collated lots of useful information for parents, carers and guardians all in one place.

Explore our basic guides and videos below and help your child make informed choices about their future.
