Time is ticking...
Don't forget to send off your Undergraduate UCAS application!
It's not too late to get your thinking cap on and look into University level options - that's if you haven't already. Once you've found the combination of the perfect course at the perfect provider, it's time to apply.
How do I apply?
You will be required to fill out an online application in the UCAS system. You don't have to complete it all in one go, you can save your progress and go back to it at any time. See here for an easy to read guide on how to apply.
There are a few things you will need before you apply:
- Your qualifications
- Content for your personal statement - see here for a handy guide on how to make yours stand out
- Quality and content of reference
- Specific details about the University and course you're applying to, such as the course code
- Personal details such as your NI number, passport information, past address details etc
- A big cup of tea and a few biscuits - a good application will take longer than five minutes!
What to expect after you've applied
If you have met the application deadline, you will get a decision from each Uni by 3rd May. You will be able to check whether a decision has been made any earlier by using Track on your UCAS account.
Decisions that Universities can make include:
- Conditional offer - you will receive a place if you meet some requirements, usually exam/course results
- Unconditional offer - you've already met the requirements and your place is confirmed
- Invitation received - you will be required to attend an interview
- Unsuccessful - you haven't been accepted, but don't panic - you can always go for another offer or go through clearing
Once you've been offered your places, you will need to make a decision as to which are your first and second choices. Your firm choice will be your first choice of University, and your insurance will be your second. You must decline any other offers. All that's left to do after that is wait for your exams results! Why not check out some open days or do some research into life as a University level student?
