At the Academy we apply to University via the APPLY System linked to the UCAS website. You need to get the “buzzword” from Miss Orton.

There are over 300 institutions offering a variety of HE courses; the best solution to help you to decide is to look at the UCAS Website which contains a list of all universities and courses to meet your needs.

To assist with University Applications, opportunity will be given to 6.1 students to visit a Higher Education Fair and they also will have the opportunity to have a guidance interview with the visiting Careers Adviser.

To decide on the right course, ask yourself:

  • Which subjects interest me?
  • What are my talents?
  • What job would I like to do?
  • Which academic skills do I want to improve?

If you are still unsure about what to study, the UsCAS web site offers advice on choosing the right course for you.

Don't forget to use E-Clips.
