How to Apply through UCAS

So you’re ready to apply for a place at university, but there is so much to take in! This is why we’ve put together a step-by-step guide on how to complete an application through UCAS for 2018 entry.

Step by step guide

1

Go to ucas.com to register your details and begin the application process

2

Create a password

3

The UCAS 'Apply' system will generate a username

4

You can then login and start completing the various sections of the application form. Sections include: personal details, additional information (for UK students only), course choices, education, employment history, personal statement and reference

5

Read each section carefully and then answer each question – you can click on the question mark icons or on the 'Help' link for further advice.

6

If you’re from the UK, UCAS asks for extra information about your background.

7

Copy in your personal statement (created using our guide, of course!).

8

Review all details to ensure that the information you’ve entered is correct, then read and sign the declaration.

9

Make sure all sections of the application form are ticked as complete.

10

If you’re paying for your application online and not through a school or college, you can add your card details and click ‘make payment’.

Your application is then sent to UCAS or, if you’re applying through a school or college, it will go through to your referee so that they can add the reference prior to submitting your application.
