At ABS, we offer students the opportunity of applying for the University of Liverpool Scholars Programme.
The University of Liverpool is committed to supporting talented students who wish to access Higher Education, regardless of background. The Liverpool Scholars programme does this by offering year 12 students the chance to take part in a range of activities aimed at preparing them for university life, including academic skills workshops, lectures, seminars and more. Students also produce an academic assignment, supported by an academic tutor, allowing them to experience university teaching and learning and to demonstrate their own academic ability and potential.
