Parents play a vital role in advising, encouraging and supporting their son/daughter in their journey to higher education, however it's also a daunting prospect for many parents, especially those who have no prior experience of university and the application process.
To give you an idea of how other families have approached the university application process, we've interviewed a number of students and their parents to share how they've managed each stage and to give you some genuine advice that you might find helpful.
