Welcome to Linking London's Uni Connect Outreach Hub BTEC Support Package. The videos and resources included are intended to be used by BTEC Extended Diploma first year students who are in the early stages of university applications. This package may also be helpful for students holding a combination of BTEC and other qualifications.
