About UCAS

UCAS is the organisation responsible for managing applications to higher education courses in the UK. Not only do we process more than two million applications for full-time undergraduate courses every year, but we help students to find the right course. We try to make things run as smoothly as possible by providing innovative online tools which make it easier for students and higher education institutions (HEIs) to manage applications and offers.

If you're thinking of applying, our six steps to applying will guide you through the process.

You can visit our Course Search if you're looking into what universities and courses you want to apply for. Once you've decided on your choices you can then apply online.

If you've already sent in your application and it's been processed you can go to Track to keep up to date on its progress.
