The Seren Network

Seren is a network of regional hubs designed to support Wales’ brightest sixth formers achieve their academic potential and gain access to leading universities.


The Seren Network Inspires students about future career aspirations - nurturing Wales’ talented students to give them the best possible education and training and make the most of the opportunities available to them.


The network links students with leading UK universities, providing information on university courses and advice on how to choose between them. Also providing information on university summer schools, workshops and other activities taking place across the UK which might be of interest. There are also opportunities to interact directly with university staff and tutors and current undergraduates.



The Seren Network is a national network. Every school and college with a sixth form is part of the eleven regional hubs across Wales. Seren hubs are active partnerships of schools and FE colleges, supported by local government, Welsh Government and leading universities. The partners work together, sharing resources and experience, to develop a programme of support for high achievers across the region. 


Seren Hubs


The Vale of Glamorgan Seren Coordinator is Nisha Shukla: 





The Seren Network will be working with some of the UK’s leading universities to support students across Wales. 


Tutors and staff will advise teachers on how best to support their high achievers, whilst also offering students practical information and guidance on application preparation.


We want to increase Welsh representation at the Russell Group and Sutton Trust 30 group of universities.
