A free short course about returning to university

Connect is a short course designed to help adults to get back into education. This free, four-part course gives information on how to progress to university and the skills needed to succeed. It’s a useful way for you to explore the idea of university, and boost your confidence.

It’s firmed up my decision to return to education and work towards becoming a social worker. Very informative course, great workshop, a good kickstart for me to enter HE and has given me confidence that I can do this.
