My Student Years CIC is a Scottish Social Enterprise company registered as a Community Interest Company.
Our vision is to empower school leavers in Scotland to realise their full potential as students in further and higher education and beyond.
Our mission is to deliver an exciting student transition platform to 16-25 year olds in the period as they leave school, and leading up to and during their first year in further and higher education which is relevant, well designed, evidence-led and student-reviewed.
In the short term our Students will have improved preparedness and confidence for starting further and higher education. In the medium term they will have improved life satisfaction in first year and a ripple beneficial effect on family and carers. In the longer term Students will benefit from improved academic performance, good health and wellbeing, reduced drop out rate and a reduced need for university and national health and wellbeing services
Our Students willl become knowledgeable in dealing with money and confident in the job market and volunteering,.
Our Students willl become environmentally aware and able to understand their contribution to a sustainable and ethical world.

"Uni is very different to school in the sense that you won't have your lecturer checking up on you for homework/deadlines."
"University isn't half as scary as you think it might be. It's great fun, you'll make friends for life, and as long as you work hard (after first year, of course), you'll come out with a great degree!."
"Join as many societies as you can so you have a few circles of friends because everyone is desperate to make friends in the first few weeks but after a few months you might find you have nothing in common with flatmates."
