Going to University is exciting in so many ways and there are plenty of options to ensure you have the best University experience possible.


UCAS is the most comprehensive site for University choices and applications.

You will need to apply for your University choices through UCAS here and there is a huge amount of help on how to do this (including your personal statement). Your tutor will work with you on this too.

Don't forget that Unifrog will help you to build your personal statement as well.
