​​​As a full time undergraduate applicant, the year ahead will be an extremely busy time which will involve you facing many important decisions such as choosing which course you want to study and at which University. You will also need to make sure you have done everything expected of you to ensure that you secure your place.

You will need to make your application online through UCAS when you are ready. The process is straightforward and UCAS have online guides and helpful tips all the way through. UCAS have also produced a useful Tariff Calculator which will help you work out tariff points.

To help make your life a little easier we have split this section of our website to help you identify the main things that you have to do both before and after you make your application.​
