UCAS and University Applications
Applying to university is a massive step. The decisions that you make now will determine your future and shape the direction that your life takes for the next three to four years.
I've been guiding students through the UCAS application process for years now, and with this comprehensive guide, I intend to share with you as much information as I can.
The first step to this complicated puzzle is finding the right course at the right university. Do you need a bachelor’s degree, an honours degree? Do you need a foundation course or a sandwich course? Are you looking for a city university or a campus university? Student finance is complicated, so you also need to consider the costs of living and tuition fees and ask yourself whether you can afford to go to university.
I will advise you on how to write successful personal statements. Along the way, you’ll learn what to write, what not to write, what admissions tutors are looking for (and what they hate), and what is going to guarantee that you end up in the reject pile straight away.
We’ll go over what universities are looking for, so you will know the specific entry requirements for all the different degree subjects. We’ll cover everything an aspiring university student needs to know, including What are the application procedures for medicine? Do you need the BMAT or the UCAT? What are UCAS points and how do they work? What are natural sciences and liberal arts? What are some university courses that you may not have considered? The list goes on, but worry not! I'm going to talk you through how to prepare for interviews and cover all the different routes you can take into university, including A-Level and non-A-Level routes. And then we’ll cover the most important part: what to do on results day!
