The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) is an independent charity providing information, advice and admissions services to people who wish to study at undergraduate level in the UK. If your aspiring student intends to study in the UK they will need to apply through UCAS.
Consult our step-by-step guide to the UCAS application process.
To find out more about how Royal Holloway will process an application please see our How to apply to an undergraduate degree page.
The all-important personal statement
This is often the part of the UCAS application which causes the most worry! You can help your future graduate by encouraging them to reflect on:
- What is about them that makes them a good student?
- Why do they want to study that particular subject?
- How will their degree studies support them in their career choices?
The trick is to write about themselves and make it all relevant to their choice of degree. For further advice please read our Writing a personal statement guide.
