UCAS Application to UK Universities and Colleges- Deadline 30 June 2011
If you didn’t send your application to UCAS by 15 January, You can still apply until 30 June in the usual way. If you complete and send your UCAS application before 30 June, it will be processed and sent to your chosen universities and colleges to consider.
There are universities and colleges that will consider you for their courses if they still have vacancies. Please make sure you check with individual universities and colleges to be sure they are still accepting applications for your choice course of study before going further with UCAS application.
The majority of institutions in the U.K. require that prospective undergraduate students apply through the Universities and Colleges Admission Service (UCAS) rather than directly. The UCAS application is one single online application form that can be sent to up to five universities in the UK at a time, the first step of which, is to register on the site.
The next step in the online application system is for you to fill in your personal details, and write down your university choices. The education section then follows including where you have studied and your qualifications, and the employment page, where you can fill in details of your work history and employers, if applicable. The most time-consuming part is the personal statement, where you write a mini essay about why you are interested in studying a particular course and why you would be a good student.
You also have to supply a reference – a teacher if you’re still at school, or, if you’re a mature student, another professional who knows you well. Before sending off your form, you have to pay the application fee using a credit or debit card – the charge is between £7 and £17.
