The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) is the system through which you select and apply for almost all full-time undergraduate courses in the UK. This is a brief overview of the stages involved. For more detailed information see our applicants' timeline and how to apply pages.
If your son or daughter is currently in education, they will make their UCAS application through their school or college. They will write a personal statement to support their application, and a teacher will write a reference for them. If they are not in education they can apply as an individual. For more details, visit UCAS web pages for parents and guardians.
Students can apply for up to five choices through UCAS. This could be a similar course at five universities, five courses at one university, or any mixture in-between. The fee for entering an application through UCAS is £13 for a single choice and £24 for multiple courses or for applications submitted after 30 June.
Internal admissions staff at each university will assess whether each applicant is capable of completing a course, based on their achieved and predicted grades, personal statement and academic reference. The process may take a few days, weeks or even longer. When a decision has been made, students will receive the response in UCAS Track, the online system that allows your son or daughter to check the progress of their UCAS application. These responses include:
