Parents

Parents explore pathways to university through Compass

Choosing the right Higher Education pathway will be one of the biggest decisions your child makes. It can be both exciting and daunting, and it will potentially impact the rest of their lives. But they don’t have to make this decision alone.

As parents, you have an enormous influence on the decisions your child will make about his or her education and career. Your perceptions and experiences of education and work have a real impact on your child from an early age.

Some parents feel that higher education is too expensive or impractical. They may also believe that it can be too hard to get into university - or just find the whole area too intimidating and confusing. One of the questions that parents think about, is University for my child?

Students involved with Compass enjoy a range of exciting and educational activities and projects in their schools and at the University of Sydney, where they meet and interact with the University's staff and students. Compass also provides opportunities for parents to come and visit the University of Sydney. Our friendly Compass staff will gladly answer any questions you may have.
