University and Higher Education

We provide our students with a range of opportunities to interact with universities, explore the range of courses on offer and make the right choices for them. Below, you will find a range of resources and links to help students and their families understand the process of applying to university and make informed decisions.

The UCAS Advisor widget is an excellent tool for parents and carers with little or no prior knowledge of higher education who find it hard to understand how best to support their son or daughter throughout the process. To find out more, visit the UCAS advisor widget on the UCAS website.

The Medicspot Innovation Grant  awards £500 to Victory Academy students going on to study a degree or equivalent related to health, medicine, nursing or life sciences. Applications must be submitted online by 31 March each year. For more information and to apply: www.medicspot.co.uk/grant
