If you’re looking to continue your education after the Academy, then you may well be thinking of going on to University. This could give you an employability advantage too, especially if you’re going to be studying an industry-relevant subject with high technical content. Not all, but lots of employers these days are looking for a degree-level education so a few years at University could very well get your foot in quite a few more doors in the future.
We know that for many, going to University is a big, personal, step and that's something we're really keen to help make a seamless process. Although we’re committed to high quality learning and passing exams, we’ll ensure that you grow as the individual you are as well. After all, many employers take personal growth into account when they’re recruiting. So we’ll actively encourage you to throw yourself into our range of clubs and societies which will hone some essential life skills and enable you to work with a wide range of people in the future. And make moving on to University and making new friends a whole lot less daunting!
Whilst you’re here at the Academy, we’ll take the time to get to know you and your personal ambitions really well. We’ll encourage you to think about who, what and where you want to be in life. If going to University is going to help achieve your ambitions, well, we’ll be backing you all the way!
