There is also the opportunity for students to have access to careers advice from independent and local institutions, including Portsmouth College, Highbury College, Southdowns & Havant College, Fareham College and Chichester College. Strong ties are made with three local Universities through in-school presentations, events, campus visits and published on-line information.
