UCAS Applications

This page is aimed at supporting parents or guardians of students applying for university.

The UCAS website is the main site with which to apply to university. Some specicialist universities in Art or Music may request applications through their own institute, but this is rare. Additionally, our students are regularly advised and supported throughout Tutor sessions.
