How can Aimhigher help your child?

Aimhigher is a partnership of universities, schools and colleges in the West Midlands, and together we try to make sure that young people from our area, and from backgrounds with no experience of university, are given every chance to explore the world of higher education:

  • We visit local schools and colleges to give information, advice and guidance on higher education, and on the learning and career choices young people and their parents or carers face at 14, 16 and 18
  • We run masterclasses, campus visits and taster sessions to give young people in Years 9, 10, 11 and 12 the chance to see how exciting and challenging learning is at different universities
  • We train current university students to work as mentors with hundreds of school and college learners every year
  • We work with employer organisations, to give young people chances to explore the incredible range of graduate level careers available
  • We collate advice and information to make it easier for you to access and digest. Check out our Virtual Resource Bank
  • We run a mentoring programme with various Universities and colleges in the region. You can find out more about the scheme by downloading the Information for Parents’ and Carers’ leaflet
