UCAS

What is UCAS?

UCAS is a charity that processes applications to study full-time courses at universities and colleges in the UK.

Their aim is to help students make informed choices that are right for them, by guiding them through the entire higher education application process and beyond. To support this, they provide a wide range of valuable information and services for applicants, their parents, and teachers.

Students can use www.ucas.com to find out how to get started, research options, make an application, and track its progress. There is information especially for parents at www.ucas.com/parents, including details of the application process and a host of helpful video guides.

UCAS Terms Explained

Throughout the application process, students and parents may find that they come across a number of terms that they may not be familiar with. Go to www.ucas.com/ucas-terms-explained to find out what they mean.
