Northumbria University are pleased to announce applications are now open for NU Entry, a supported entry scheme for students in year 12. NU Entry is a two-year scheme designed to support students on their journey to university. The first year of the programme focusses on supporting exploration of university choices, development of key skills for undergraduate study and application preparation. The second year of the programme continues the application support and is designed to support the transition to university. Students who complete the first year of NU Entry will earn 16 NU Entry points, which are equivalent to UCAS tariff points when applying to Northumbria University.
What does NU Entry involve? In the first year, you will need to complete any combination of 2 online webinars/activities or faculty events from the programme, attend the NU Entry conference on campus in July and complete a research essay on your chosen subject area of interest, to earn NU Entry points. In the second year you are then able to benefit from an optional programme of support throughout the year.
