All sample groups felt that they, as parents, had the biggest influence over their child’s important education and career decisions

Parental Influence: the key role played by parents in their children’s decisions about routes and pathways post-18
GTI Media, July 2015

Why is this important?

There are two reasons why this is crucial. One is that you, as a parent or guardian, have a huge influence on the young person you are supporting.

And the second, is that students have huge decisions ahead of them when thinking about university - and they are likely to need your help with exploring them. These may include:

  • Do they want to go to university?
  • Which university do they want to attend?
  • Which subject do you they want to study?

Then, those answers may lead to more questions:

  • What is involved in their university application?
  • How do they write a personal statement?
  • How does student finance work?
  • Where will they live?
  • What support is available at university?

UniTasterDays can help with the answers:

  • Search university events for students and/or parents to experience university such as open days and taster days listed by universities UK-wide.
  • Watch impartial on demand webinars – introducing a huge range of university subjects. Covering what to expect, careers, applications and more. From Accounting to Zoology - and 100s of subjects in between!
  • Listen to the parent podcast, providing listeners with cutting edge and up-to-date information and conversations to provide excellent support to those considering university. Without the jargon and from the lived experience of everyone involved in the process.
  • Download the Parents’ Guide to University brochure. Which includes the key higher education facts for parents and guardians – and features editorial from over 40 expert practitioners.
  • Prepare the person you are supporting with what happens next by reading advice blogs, with the content provided by university experts.
