Schools and colleges liaison
At Wrexham Glyndŵr University we believe that it’s never too early to start thinking about your future.
We work closely with students of all ages, teachers, parents/guardians and careers advisors to offer a range of events and activities designed to enhance the awareness and raise aspirations of higher education, encouraging young people to consider the opportunities available to them.
We recognise the importance of working closely with teachers and careers advisers, and the crucial role they play in ensuring students have access to the most up-to-date information about higher education.
Being a smaller university works in our favour as at Wrexham Glyndŵr we blend the importance of academia with a strong sense of community. We are student-centred, market-led and open to all.
