Headstart FAQ's for Teacher


Can a student attend more than one course?

No, as we oversubscribe by 50% year on year so it is only right we limit to one course.

How much does it cost?

Please refer to the individual course description on our website.

Are there bursary (free) places and how does it work?

Please refer to bursaries section on our website.

Can more than one student from my school attend a Headstart course?

Yes but only where courses are of a size that can accommodate. EDT and their partner universities wish to reach out to as many schools as possible, so it is only right that we recruit from a broad spectrum of schools across the UK.

What type of students attend or are suitable?

Any student studying ‘A’ level or BTEC equivalent in a science, maths or technology subject who is considering higher education (degree/degree apprenticeship) and looking at potential career pathways in STEM.

Are these Headstart courses for only the elite/top performing students A/A*?

No, EDT and its partner universities have courses to suit all abilities and more than half the courses seek to find B/C/D grade students.
