Top tips

  • Make contact with the university or college you would like to apply to.  All of these organisations have people who provide information and advice and who are experienced at supporting people through the application process
  • Research the course thoroughly, find out what the entry requirements are 
  • Find a reliable, robust referee to support your application
  • Complete the Lifepilot HE Skills Map Tool to see which skills you already seem to use a lot. Think about which ones will be most useful for the course your are applying to and talk about them on your application. Try to use examples to show how you have developed the skills and how they will be useful on the course
  • Consider applying for accreditation of prior experiential learning (APEL). Your previous work and experience is valuable to universities and colleges
  • Take time to complete the application form thoroughly as this is the only thing your college/university will have on which to base their decision.  Share this form with your adviser or a trusted person and ask for their opinion
