Higher Education Pathways
As we are all very much aware this has been the most extraordinary time for everyone across the globe and education has not escaped the impact of the Covid-19 Coronavirus.
Unifrog has produced a detailed report looking specifically at the impact of Covid-19 upon students and their future plans. The report offers an insight that school leaders will find very informative and useful in their own support planning for students and their futures. Below are the key findings from the report;
1 in 2 students say the pandemic has made them less motivated to study and do well.
Students who feel they have good support from their teachers and counselors are significantly happier than those who don’t.
The pandemic, coupled with Brexit uncertainty, had led to a 16% drop in the number of shortlists made on the UK uni search tool.
16% of students are considering deferring their place at university as a result of the pandemic.
Students are finding decision making challenging, with 23% saying the pandemic has made it more difficult to make decisions and 32% delaying decision making.
There’s been a 172% increase in MOOCs shortlists made, mainly driven by girls.
This highlights the needs for a focus on Higher Education Pathways. Our HE Partner, University of Birmingham Dubai, offers BSME Students a variety of resources to prepare them for their Higher Education Journey.
