The UK University and College Admission Service (UCAS) is the application used when applying to universities in the UK.
Before beginning your UCAS application, you must know exactly what you want to study, as there isn’t much wiggle room in the UK curriculum to change courses once you have started your study.
Once you know what you want to study, register for an account online and fill out your personal details (i.e. your name, phone number, address, email address etc).
Students pay £9,250 a year for full-time study, which is covered by a student loan. You can also apply for a maintenance loan to cover some of the cost of your accommodation and food bills.
