Tell us about … applying to higher education with a criminal record

Applying to higher education can be an exciting and nerve-wracking time, especially if you’ve been out of education for a while. If you have a criminal record, awaiting the decision after disclosing can create even more anxiety.

Unlock would like to hear from you about your experience of applying to higher education.

  • Was it clear why you were being asked about your criminal record?
  • Did you feel you were treated fairly?
  • What was the outcome?
  • Is there anything you’d change about the process?
