UCAS is the application website for most schools in the UK.
How does UCAS work?
Students can choose five programs on the UCAS Application. This can be five different universities, or several programs at one specific university.
UCAS schools are primarily three year programs (except Scotland) where students concentrate on their major for the entire time. Essentially students going to these schools MUST decide on a major going in and stick with it. There is no changing later.
UCAS has a personal statement which is very different from the US application essays. This statement should be straight forward and specifically talk about what the student wants to study, why, and how they have shown their interest. They should discuss their goals in the field and any prior experience that they have had in it.
