Higher Education Engagement Update

The department has now published a list of Higher Education Providers (HEPs) who will accept T Level students for entry into 2022. This list is by no means exhaustive, and will be continuously updated as more HEPs clarify their position on T Levels. We recognise that there are still instances where the entry requirements of a particular institution are unclear, and we would encourage students to get in touch with the admissions office for that particular institution, as they might need to if they were taking other level 3 qualifications, most universities have a dedicated admissions contact email. If students are finding it challenging to understand the approach to admissions, or difficult to contact an institution, we ask providers to get in touch with the higher education lead at the corresponding T Level awarding organisation, this is universities@cityandguilds.com at City and Guilds, highereducationengagement@ncfe.org.uk at NCFE and Customer Service portal for Pearson. The awarding organisations will be able to engage an institution directly and offer support to understand each T Level specification in detail.
