It’s a new year, and you might have exciting new plans – perhaps you’re going to follow Tiffany’s advice and start a ‘passion project’ - but if you are hoping to go to Uni, perhaps you need to finish off your UCAS application, or maybe, you need to start it.
Whatever stage your UCAS application is at, this might be where Anisha’s blog comes in handy - breakdown the whole/ remainder of application into manageable chunks, rather than trying to complete it in one sitting. You don’t want to make any obvious mistakes.
The application, although in-depth, will be worth the effort you put in. UCAS will want to know your current qualifications, and a personal statement. Briefly, your personal statement should display your passion for the course/s you are looking to apply for. It should also show the following:
Importantly, you will also need a reference.
When filling in your details, and I apologise for stating the obvious here, but make sure you use the email address you check / use the most. It would be awful if you set up a dedicated UCAS application email address but then forget to check it. You really don’t want to miss any emails, or information that you need to action, so do not overcomplicate anything.
This information, and more guidance, can be found at Learn all about filling in your UCAS application for uni
The other thing to keep in mind is that it will cost £27.50 for 5 applications. So ensure you have chosen your top 5 Uni’s and courses.
If you haven’t completed the form – you better get your skates on, as it could (i.e should) take you some time, and the deadline is 31st Jan.
Now, go show UCAS the very best of yourself and what you have to offer. Your next big journey is awaiting you, and it wants to meet the best you you can be!
If you are estranged young person or care leaver you could apply for the Unite Foundation Scholarship. The scholarship supplies free accommodation for the 3 year duration of your studies. There are 95 places available for the Sept 24 intake, across a number of different participating Uni's - you have until 23:59 on June 24th to apply. Check the This is Us website for more information.
I'm Alex, one of the Editorial, Marketing and Administration Managers at Push. I was the first in my family to go to Uni, where I studied BA (Hons) Communication, Culture and Media. I then went on to work at the Financial Times newspaper, as well as their 'How To Spend It' supplement as Editorial Assistant, following which I became Office Manager at The Times.
I originally went to Uni so I could get a job in PR, but soon realised it wasn't for me and moved to publishing.
Now having a young family of my own, I realise how important the right advice is - and this is why I love working for PUSH!
