“Headstart is a fantastic opportunity for students to get a first-hand experience of student life and a real insight into what courses are available at University. It gives students the chance to explore or reaffirm their options ahead of UCAS deadlines and ask the questions which otherwise they might not have had the chance to do. It’s great to see students getting involved in the various tasks and activities and of course, making some really good friends along the way” UK Electronics Skills Foundation
