Transition to University Programme

Our Transition to University Programme is a free two day event for applicants who have disclosed an Autism Spectrum condition. It’s a great way to meet applicants and staff.

The Transition to University programme will take place 20-21 August 2020. We'll be hosting a series of online information sessions and workshops to give you an insight into to student life. We're hoping that by running this great event virtually we can reach even more of you! 

The event will assist you to develop your independent living skills so you feel prepared to move away from home. The Bristol Autism Spectrum Service (BASS) are delivering specialist workshops on managing the transition to university. You’ll also be able to find out about services at the University, including Student Wellbeing and Accommodation.

Activities will include:

  • Introductions to key university services
  • Workshop with the Bristol Autism Spectrum Service (BASS)
  • Student Finance and budgeting top tips
  • Introduction to Disabled Students’ Allowances and Assistive Technology
  • Virtual tour of campus - it's impressive!
  • Parents and supporter talk - to answer any queries they may have.
