Applications to Higher Education Institutions
It is very important that you research your chosen universities very carefully if you are planning to go on to Higher Education in the near future. In order to help you, there is a comprehensive careers section with current prospectuses and reference books in the College’s Learning Centres. You should make an appointment with a College Careers Adviser if you are unsure about your choice of course(s).
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.
All applications must be received by UCAS no later than 15th January 2018 (October 15th 2017 - for medicine and Oxbridge) but you should aim to get your application completed before the end of the autumn term.
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.
We advise you check the UCAS website frequently for updates.
It is very important that you attend the group talks organised by your Course Tutor. 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.
