Image of Students Take Advantage of University of Liverpool Scholars Programme

Liam Haywood from the University of Liverpool visited the Sixth Form College last week to deliver an inspiring talk to our students on the University’s Scholars Programme.

The Scholars Programme gives first year A Level & BTEC students the opportunity to take part in a range of activities which are designed to prepare them for University life and support their entry into Higher Education.

Activities scholars programme students can get involved in include application guidance workshops, academic skills master classes, the opportunity to attend lectures by academies and undergraduates.

The programme also offers students benefits such as the opportunity to gain a guaranteed conditional offer of a place at the University of Liverpool that is reduced by up to 2 A Level grades or 40 UCAS tariff points. Students that are successfully subscribed to the programme also receive the Liverpool Scholars Award – a non-repayable financial bursary of approximately £3000 per year of study.

Twenty-six students from the Sixth Form College have expressed interest in the scheme and attended the talk last week to find out more about the programme.

Personal & Guidance Tutor, Leigh O’Mahony, who works closely with the University of Liverpool and introduced the Scholars Programme to the students, said, “Programmes such as The University of Liverpool’s Scholars Scheme are extremely valuable to students during the application stage for Higher Education, as they can offer great support to students during what can be a demanding and stressful time. Programmes such as this can help build students confidence and offers a helping hand with progression, as well as giving them an insight into University life.”
