Applying to higher education can be an exciting and nerve-wracking time, especially if you’ve been out of education for a while. If you have a criminal record, awaiting the decision after disclosing can create even more anxiety.
Unlock would like to hear from you about your experience of applying to higher education.
- Was it clear why you were being asked about your criminal record?
- Did you feel you were treated fairly?
- What was the outcome?
- Is there anything you’d change about the process?
Let us know at email@example.com.
We will use your responses (anonymously) in our work with higher education providers. We want to make admissions fair.
