UCAS Apply Process
During the Autumn term, your course tutor will give you information about the UCAS application system and can arrange for your campus’s UCAS Co-ordinator to give a presentation on the ‘Apply’ system.
Applying early gives you a better chance of getting a place where you want to go. Applications are now made electronically via the Internet at www.ucas.com/apply. You will be given a “buzzword” which identifies you as a Coleg y Cymoedd learner. Please ask your tutor, or the UCAS Coordinator if you are not sure what the buzzword is.
We advise you check the UCAS website frequently for updates www.ucas.com
The careers section on the UCAS website is also an excellent opportunity for you to do your research and explore careers paths and appropriate qualification routes:
It is very important that you attend the group talks organised by your UCAS Coordinator. You will receive all the necessary materials and information at these talks to help you complete your application forms.
During the year, various talks and seminars will take place and you should watch College notice boards for information about these events. The UCAS Coordinator and your tutor can direct you to the location of appropriate resources to support you further.
The UCAS learner handbook is also available to give you guidance on the application process. Please ask your tutor to provide you with access to this. Otherwise, please contact the UCAS Coordinator who can also provide you with this information along with other helpful resources.
