Higher Education and UCAS Information
Year 13 students are currently in the middle of completing their UCAS applications. Personal Statements are being prepared, and subject references are being collected from their teachers. The official UCAS deadline is the 15th January 2019, but it is anticipated that the vast majority of applications will be submitted to UCAS before Christmas. If any student needs support with their UCAS application, they should speak to their PSHE tutor in the first instance, followed by their form tutor or a member of the Sixth Form team. There will be an Information Evening for parents about University Finance in January 2019.
For our Year 12 students, the UCAS process really starts in March 2019, where they will have the opportunity to visit the UCAS Higher Education Convention at De Montfort University in Leicester. This will be followed by an Higher Education Information Evening for parents, which will be taking place in May 2019. Year 12 students are encouraged to start going to university open days from March 2019 onwards, so that they are well informed for when it comes to making their final five UCAS choices on their application!
