As a parent/carer you will have lots of questions about higher education. You can read our Parent/Carer Guide to Higher Education which will help you understand the options ahead, and what as a parent/carer you can do to support your young learner. 

In the resource library there are also a series of informative videos on all aspects of higher education and financing as well as real parents talking about their own experiences of their children's higher education experience.
