My Super Curricular is a subscription service for schools that offers quality super curricular resources and recommendations. My Super Curricular helps students create impressive academic profiles and enhance their university and apprenticeship applications. At 16.30, Anya and Nicola will stay on for an additional 15 minutes so that teachers/advisers can find out more about the services My Super Curricular offers to schools and colleges.


Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.


Suitable for: Year 11 & 12 students (and equivalent) potentially interested in going to university and wanting to understand how super curricular will enhance their chances of securing the right course at their chosen university. We welcome groups supported by their advisers/teachers, and individuals.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Zoom and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices.
