From course choice to clearing, this session takes students through the UCAS process and offers advice on how to make the most of their UCAS application.
This session can range from a basic 30-minute practical guide on successfully completing the Personal Statement, to an hour-long hands-on workshop. Regardless of the length, all of the sessions will help students understand what universities are looking for, how to present themselves in the best light and find the motivation to ‘get it done’.
By highlighting the type and amount of funding available and using typical examples, this session allows students to identify how much support they could receive. The session also provides an opportunity for students to address any financial concerns they may have.
