10 steps to completing your UCAS application

Whilst deciding where and what you’re going to study at university isn’t always easy, applying is. Simply follow these basic steps to find out what you need to do.

  1. Visit UCAS.com and Register your details on Apply – the online application system.
  2. Log In and fill out the rest of your personal details. Don’t worry if you can’t complete the form in one go, you can keep revisiting it until you’re happy.
  3. Choose five courses – You don’t need to order these in terms of preference, and your universities won’t see where else you’ve applied until you reply to your offers.
  4. Enter your full education history – your referee will submit any academic results you have not yet received.
  5. Submit employment history – this includes any paid job whether full-time or part-time. You can mention any unpaid or voluntary work in your personal statement.
  6. Write your Personal Statement – this is your chance to show the universities/colleges why you want to study the course and why they should pick you. For some useful tips on writing the perfect personal statement take a look at the simple guide on the UCAS website.
  7. Check it - look back at everything you have submitted and make any necessary edits. Once you have marked everything as complete you’ll be able to read and agree to the declaration.
  8. Get a reference – this can be from a teacher, adviser or professional who knows you academically. 
  9. Make your Payment - The fee for applying through UCAS is £23.00 for multiple choices, or £12.00 for a single choice. Late applications sent after 20th June will be charged at £23.
  10. Send your application to UCAS and await your offers.
