Who are UCAS?
UCAS stands for the University and Colleges Admissions Service, and was formed in 1993. They provide a central service between applicants and universities. All applications for full-time undergraduate courses in the UK must be submitted via UCAS, who in turn, pass them on to your selected institutions.
Does it cost me anything?
Yes, there is a fee to submit your UCAS application. It currently costs £13 for one university choice and £24 for up to five choices.
