Fast Track for teachers and advisers

Fast Track programmeThe Fast Track programme offers a comprehensive package of intervention for students who may benefit from additional support to enable them to progress on to university level study.

Fast Track offers partner schools and colleges a two year programme of support for selected students that assists them throughout their Level 3 qualifications, providing awareness and aspiration raising activities that motivate learners and provide them with the information and skills they need to access higher education. We help students to research the range of options available to them and provide expert advice to allow them to make a strong application to their chosen courses and universities.

What's on offer?

Selected learners will be part of a community of Fast Track students, who will receive a range of benefits exclusive to the scheme including:

  • the chance to sample a wide range of subjects at university level;
  • a student ambassador mentor studying a similar subject area, helping students to succeed in their current studies and beyond;
  • a one-day campus visit and a free two-day summer school;
  • personal statement advice and one-to-one support, including personalised feedback on draft statements;
  • access to our library facilities as a reference user to help develop independent learning skills; and
  • priority booking for Kingston University outreach activities including our subject-specific activities.

In addition, students who are accepted onto courses at Kingston University are guaranteed entry onto our Compact Scheme, offering continued support throughout your university journey right through to graduation!

Who is eligible?

Fast Track is a targeted support package for students whose parents have not studied at university, or have a background in local authority care/placement in foyer accommodation. We ask that you identify appropriate students who are most able to benefit from the scheme.

The programme is exclusive to students from partner colleges and sixth forms who are top feeders into our Compact Scheme. For more information or to become involved in the Fast Track programme please contact t.dhir@kingston.ac.uk.

Staff testimonial

"Being part of the Kingston Fast Track programme has been a fantastic opportunity for our students. In particular, experiencing taster sessions enabled students to take part in activities related to their chosen subject as well as introduce a range of subjects they may not have previously considered. For me, one of the key benefits was the opportunity it gave the students to meet others on the programme and experience the social aspect of university life."
