Help with Higher Education

We also organise an annual Higher Education Fair so, if you are considering university, this is an ideal opportunity to discuss courses with visiting university representatives.

Over 900 Halesowen College students progress to university each year and the number is growing. We have progression agreements with a number of local universities, which help learners by providing guarantees of routes, interviews, places and sometimes bursaries.

Your personal coach and our careers staff will give you all the support you will need to complete the university application process.
