How to Apply
You can apply to UCAS online – it only takes a few minutes to register. When you register you will be given a username; they will only show this to you once, so take a note of it! Ask your tutor or your campus careers advisor for the College Buzzword. This links your application to the college and helps us support you.
After you register you can begin your application. It is all online and is broken down into sections. You can save your application and return to it at any time.
Before you start – you will need a working email address. It would also be useful if you have details of your current course, like all the units you will be studying and the awarding body. If you don’t have that information, ask your tutor. You may want to start digging out your GCSE’s results: universities will want to know about those too.
Make note of the deadlines. Applications should be completed by November 30
It is an important part of your application, but it is also your chance to really sell yourself. Lots of help is available, so try not to worry. Whatever you do, don’t be tempted to copy someone else’s statement – you will be caught!
Here are some “top tips” for completing your personal statement:
You will log in to see which Universities have made you offers, or if you have to attend interviews. Look at the conditions of the offer carefully. You can choose one firm and one insurance offer.
Join forums and share other applicant’s views and experiences and tips to help you make a successful application.
