Parent and Carer Webinar Series

Parent and Carer Webinar Series

Parents, carers and their young people can join the team to hear from university staff, debunk the myths associated with higher education, and have your questions answered. 

Queen Mary is pleased to launch a series of webinars designed to support parents and carers to understand the journey to higher education. As key influences, parents and carers can offer invaluable support in the lead up, and transition to, higher education. At Queen Mary, we want to make the process as clear as possible.

The webinars are suitable for parents, carers, key supporters and their young people. If you’re a student in Year 12 or 13 and just want to learn more about any of the below topics, then we also encourage you to register for the webinar.
