About the UK

The United Kingdom is classified as the largest island in Europe, formed of four countries (EnglandWalesScotland, and Northern Ireland) and numerous tiny islands.

Furthermore, Britain is one of the world’s most prominent countries, primarily due to its notable benefactions to the global economy. And subsequently, it is a great nation with abundant history and experiences, where the cultures and rituals of British civilisation are among the intriguing customs for international tourists and visitors.

Additionally, its cultural exports have become attributed globally, including their literature, theatre, film, and television. Before all, we shall not forget the UK’s greatest and most influential export- English linguistics, which has grown to be one of the chief means of social and commercial trade universally.

Applying to a University in the UK

UG (Undergraduateapplications to UK universities are usually made via UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service). PG (Postgraduate) applications usually are made straight to the university, commonly through the university website.

If you're an international student, be certain to submit your application way before the deadline, mainly if you aim to enroll yourself at one of the UK's best academies. Properly go through university website course pages for details of how to apply and the eligibility criteria.

If you acquired your degree from outside the UK, you'd need to research your preferred university’s course entry conditions. Few universities have articles about this on their websites, or you can contact their administration for guidance.

How to Apply for UCAS?

    • It's quite simple; you'll have to fill in your details on the UCAS website. Double-check all the information you provide, input everything correctly.
    • Pick a course you desire to pursue. Once you've chosen a course, note down its unique UCAS code, as you'll require it while filling the application form.
    • Look for a university which is perfect for you. Examine the location, league table position, accommodation, and departments. Once you've shortlisted the universities that suit you the best, pen down their unique UCAS codes.
    • You can only fill in 1 UCAS form, but you'll get five choices with it. You can apply to 5 separate colleges for the same degree course or five various programs at the same university. The UCAS allows you to write only one personal statement for all five options.
