Application to study at university
The deadline for university applications is 15 January 2012. It is possible to apply after this date but the universities are not obliged to consider your application. If you have already applied please make sure you check your emails regularly as this is the way that universities and UCAS will communicate with you. Once you have heard from all your choices then you are in a position to narrow down your selection to your firm choice and your insurance. The former will be the one with the higher offer than the latter naturally.
It is now time to begin applying for student finance to help you next year. Visit the Directgov website for more information and to apply. Click here for additional information on student finance.
If you have any questions or concerns please come into the sixth form office for guidance
