Teachers & Parents
Helpful information for parents, teachers, schools and career advisors about the courses we offer and the application process to study at SRUC.
Teachers & advisors
Our SRUC’s Marketing and Student Recruitment Team is always at hand to speak to teachers, schools and career advisors. We offer talks about SRUC, about different post-school study options (university, college and apprenticeships) and about land-based careers in general. We are very happy to attend school careers events and we offer digital resources to support careers advice.
Information for careers advisors
At SRUC we maximise a student's potential, and have a history of doing so with non-traditional entrants and those coming straight from school.
Parents & guardians
As a parent or supporter, you are warmly invited to attend an SRUC open day (or evening) to see our facilities for yourself. You can meet the lecturers and learn about eventual career possibilities. Our friendly staff will be happy to answer any questions you have about
- the application process
- study and pastoral support
- student finance
For further information and dates, please refer to the open days section of the web site.
Alternatively, SRUC is always out and about at Career and Higher Education fairs and local shows and events - our calendar provides details and you are very welcome to drop into one of these and talk to staff.
Please contact our recruitment team for further information and advice.
