Applying to study in the UK is much simpler with UCAS. You can apply online and choose up to five different courses at the same time. All UCAS institutions and courses are recognized by the UK government, so you can be sure you’re making the right choice for your UK education.
What is UCAS?
The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) is a centralized application process for UK undergraduate study. It makes applying for full-time undergraduate degree courses and Higher National Diplomas (HNDs) straightforward and easy to understand.
All UCAS institutions are recognized by the UK government or offer courses that are validated by UK government-recognized universities. When you apply through UCAS you can:
- make up to five choices at once on one application
- apply to a wide range of different courses and institutions
- apply online using UCAS Apply
- track the progress of your applications.
Preparing your UCAS application
You can apply for up to five UK courses in a single UCAS application (two different courses at the same institution count as two choices). Only one UCAS application can be submitted in each application cycle.
You do not have to apply for all your choices at the same time. Further choices can be added as long as you have not used up all your choices and have not accepted a place. You can find video guides to help you prepare your application on the UCAS TV website: www.ucas.tv
Up to date information about applying for student visas to study in the UK can be found on the UK Border Agency website. In addition, the UK Council for International Student Affairs website has news about recent visa changes, as well as details of the rules about paid work while you are studying in the UK.
