Top tips for your ucas application

Hello Reader! My name is Amber, and I am a recent graduate from the University of Worcester; here is my checklist of things you need to do before hitting ‘send’ on your UCAS application.

UCAS Application

This may sound obvious? But make sure you have registered with UCAS. Once you have registered ensure that you have provided all the correct information this includes personal details, education and employment history, personal statement, as well as your course choices. Double check that you have entered the correct course code and registered with your chosen five chosen courses.

Personal Statement

Your personal statement is your chance to tell universities why you would like to study with them and showcase your skills. Make sure have included all your achievements and experiences relevant to the course you are studying. It is also important to include areas of interest in your chosen subject. As I wanted to study English, I included books I had been inspired by and areas I wished to study in. Finally, proofread your application for spelling and grammar errors before submitting. You can either do this yourself or ask a friend, family member, or college tutor to give one last look over.


Whether you apply independently (as I did), or through your college, you will be required to provide a reference in support of your application. Although, you cannot view your references on UCAS they will alert you to when they have been submitted.

Any Questions?

If you have any questions, you need answering regarding your application contact our Admissions team for further advise. In addition, details for our admissions tutors and course contacts are available on our course pages.

Pay For Your Application

Once you have completed all of the above you will then be required to pay for your application (prices are or the UCAS website).

Last Check Before You Submit

Finally, and most importantly do one final check over your application before you submit. Most importantly make sure you are happy with your application. Then hit take a deep breath and submit your application!

University is a great opportunity to start again, study what you love, and make incredible memories. Good luck with your applications.
