Undergraduate Prospectus Icon Times Higher Education University of the Year logo thumb ‌If your present school or college is registered with UCAS (chances are they will be) just ask your teacher or careers adviser to help. If you want to apply for a full-time first (undergraduate) degree, foundation degree, DipHE or HND course, you need to submit your application via UCAS. That’s the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service. Go to

If you’re not at school or college but are based in the UK you can apply online independently. You will need to pay the correct fee and supply the name of the academic reference (who will be contacted directly by UCAS) and then submit your application. The UCAS website provides full instructions on the application process and also has a comprehensive guide usefully entitled Applying Online. Download it now from

For international applicants from outside the UK (within the EU and worldwide), you should also apply online independently unless your school or college is registered with UCAS. Again, you are responsible for paying the correct fees, obtaining and attaching the academic reference and submitting the completed application to UCAS. Further help and advice is available from British Council offices and other centres overseas.
