T Levels and Higher Education Progression

T Levels provide a strong foundation for young people aged 16-19 and can lead on to a range of progression opportunities, including Higher Education (HE) and Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs). The Department for Education engages closely with the HE sector on T Levels to ensure that students have the best progression options available following their T Level.

HE providers are autonomous institutions and many are competitive, with high entry requirements for some courses and additional requirements. We would encourage providers to support students with their HE journeys early on, so they are able to be realistic about the possibilities of progression. To support students understanding of the options for progression into higher education from T Levels, the department has produced a list of higher education providers that will accept T Levels. The UCAS Course Directory also provide a source of information on courses and entry requirements for different institutions for students.

Some HE providers may request further information about T Level content before deciding on their admissions policy. Supporting your local HE providers by sharing T Level resources for universities is a good opportunity to build relationships and support student progression into HE.

Below is a list of resources that you can signpost to your local HE providers to promote T Levels:

The department has been engaging with many Higher Education providers across the UK directly on T Levels, if you would like to suggest specific Higher Education providers that the department should approach, we ask that you email routesreadiness.te@education.gov.uk.
