Everything you need to know about applying to university in the United Kingdom.
Kiss goodbye to ambiguous advice and guidance about UCAS applications. These courses on the application form and personal statement provide students with step-by-step support through the most difficult parts of the process, and the course on the reference provides expert suggestions for heads of sixth form, heads of careers, and reference writers on how to create an efficient and effective school-wide UCAS process.
A how-to guide to the UCAS application form, including how to register for UCAS, complete each and every section of the application form (paying close attention to the tricky bits), and pay and submit it when completed.
A how-to guide to the UCAS personal statement, including how to write a powerful opening, complete each and every paragraph required to showcase your knowledge and skills, and review and redraft it when completed.
A how-to guide to the UCAS reference, including how to introduce and contextualise the applicant; write, collate, and edit subject comments for them; and summarise and review their reference when completed.
UCAS advice and guidance is only as good as the people who give it.

Their expertise is grounded in their experience as practising teachers and graduates of the world's best universities.
