UCAS, Higher Education and Apprenticeships
Applying to University/College through UCAS
Most questions about your UCAS application can be answered by clicking on the help buttons provided. You can also phone UCAS on 0871 468 0468 with your UCAS Personal ID number to hand or e-mail: email@example.com. Another very useful website is https://unistats.direct.gov.uk/ which allows you to easily compare courses across a wide range of universities. We highly recommend visiting universities by attending their University Open Days, a list of when these are held can be found at www.ucas.com/open-days. If you wish to attend a University Open Day during the week, please let Sixth Form reception know by writing your name and the name of the university you are visiting in the pink diary.
