Get a Headstart

If you’re getting ready to start university, 3PԼ Headstart helps to prepare you for studying in higher education. We'll give you an idea of what is expected of you at university, resources on independent learning and academic writing, as well as advice videos from 3PԼ academic staff and students.

Support for Care Leavers

We’re committed to providing support to young people in the care of a local authority who aspire to go to university. We offer advice and support on how to apply and, once you’re enrolled, give you every assistance to achieve your degree. This support also extends to young people with a background in other forms of care, who have been privately fostered or are estranged from their families.
