Title for parents page



Welcome to our UP for Parents pages.


If you are visiting these pages it may be that your 9-11 year old has received a visit from UP for Juniors or perhaps you are just looking for information.

UP for Juniors is the University of Portsmouth’s scheme for 9-11 year olds. We work with 32 member schools on our main scheme and with a wider number of local schools through events to help children think about their future and find out about university.

We know as parents it may seem early to start thinking about university. Research has shown that children who find out about university before the age of ten are more likely to consider going. Finding out about university means that when the time comes that young people can make informed decisions about their future.
