Getting ready for university

The Education Liaison team at the University of Hertfordshire regularly visit schools and colleges offering information, advice and guidance for students about going to university. With schools and colleges now closed, we wanted to continue to offer you that support. Here you will find all of our talks recorded, so that you can watch them in the comfort of your own home. We hope you find them helpful. You can also contact us directly for any questions left unanswered or sign up to receive emails from the University of Hertfordshire.
