S5 Introduction to Higher Education Presentation

On this page you'll find our Introduction to Higher Education Presentation.

If you are an S5 student at a LEAPS Group 1+, Group 1 or Group 2 school, and you are thinking about applying to higher education at college or university, this presentation is for you!

Usually we would come and meet you in school and give this presentation to you in person, but as we are still working remotely at the moment we have created an online version for you to watch which you will find if you scroll further down this page. We hope to be able to meet you in person soon!

What does this presentation cover?

This short presentation explains higher education at college and university and the support LEAPS offers to LEAPS-eligible students, including opportunities and events we will be offering to help you explore any college or university plans you might be thinking about.

Which version of the presentation should I watch?

We have two versions of this presentation, one for students attending our LEAPS Group 1+ and Group 1 schools and one for students attending our LEAPS Group 2 schools (which covers LEAPS eligibility criteria in relation to Group 2 schools in more detail).

You can find details of LEAPS school groupings here. Please look to see which group your school is in and then watch the relevant presentation below.

2. Get ready for your S5 Interview

Your S5 Interview will take place by phone between January and March. If you have time, please have a think beforehand about your S4 grades, your S5 qualifications and any college or university plans you are considering. You'll be able to talk all of this through with a friendly LEAPS advisor and get some advice and guidance to help you move forward with any decisions. We're looking forward to speaking with you!

We'll be collecting your contact details as part of the S5 Interview process so that we can send you LEAPS updates.
