West Midlands Webinars

This page will be updated with information about the 2021 West Midlands Webinars programme at the end of September.

The webinars are suited for anyone who hopes to apply to competitive universities: if you’re a high-achieving student (aiming to get above AAA at A Level), intellectually curious and ambitious, these webinars will be a great start for your university journey.

If you are offered a place on the programme, you will be emailed ahead of each session with further information and a registration link. These webinars will take place after school (all final times/dates will be confirmed once you have been offered a place). You are not obliged to attend all sessions.


To apply for this programme, you must be attending a state school or sixth form college in the West Midlands.

We would like to support as many students as possible through the programme. However, if it is oversubscribed, we will prioritise students who match one or more of the following criteria:

  • Have lived, or are currently living, in local authority care
  • Are eligible, or have been eligible within the past six years, for free school meals
  • Are a refugee
  • Have caring responsibilities for a family member
  • Live in neighbourhoods with low overall progression rates to higher education
  • Have no parental history of higher education
  • Have a disability

What is a webinar?

These sessions will be run using Zoom webinar software. When you register to attend a webinar-style session, you will then be sent a Zoom link which will allow you to join the event. Your camera/microphone will not be enabled, and you will only be able to communicate with the hosts/panellists running the session by typing out questions or comments.
