Students at HE, whether at college or university, will need to acquire a whole bunch of new skills and further develop others.

LOLS has been developed by LIFT OFF in collaboration with our partner schools, colleges and universities to help start this ball rolling and hopefully, make the whole process less of a struggle.

What is it? 

LOLS is for S5 Core Pupils who are interested in going on to study at HE level after school - remember that is HNC or above at college or university. 

It is delivered over two days at a partner HEI campus where you will participate in workshops focused on skills that will help you succeed in HE. These skills include HE applications, self management, critical thinking, group working and presentation skills.

Have a look at the Promo Slides above to find out more!

When does it happen?

LOLS takes place over two days in the October holidays. This year it will take place at Abertay University on Thursday 17th and Friday 18th October 2019. This will be followed by a in-school session to assess your group presentations.

Who can take part?

S5 Core Pupils.

Anything else I need to know?

LOLS is assessed by a group presentation and is credit rated with 3 credit points at Level 6 on the Scottish Credit and Qualification Framework. There's lots of help from LIFT OFF staff, and all participants will get really useful feedback as part of the process. If you need to get in touch with us for anything regarding LOLS, please email
