Dear Parent/Guardian,
As students continue to prepare and to complete their CAO application, there are a number of students who may be eligible for the two ACCESS Schemes (HEAR & DARE) mentioned below. I have attached the information booklets on both and students also have access to all this information through their Teams page. If you think your son/daughter might be eligible it is strongly advised to log into these information sessions.

The DARE and HEAR Scheme Application Information Sessions will take place this Saturday 8th January 2022 online via Zoom. These webinars provide an opportunity students, parent(s)/ guardian(s) to meet members of the DARE and HEAR teams across the higher education sector online and find out how the schemes work. If you are interested in attending, please see below the registration links for both webinars and further information via the IUA website…
