If you want to study in Great Britain, UCAS is there to help you. Instead of writting to each university on your own, you just apply online through UCAS. And why are we writting this here? Because our school, Prywatne Liceum Ogólnokształcące im. Melchiora Wańkowicza, is a UCAS centre, which simply means that we can help you with your application.
As a UCAS centre our role is to:
- help students with managing their applications (advice on how to apply, checking and suggesting corrections in students' applications),
- give students access to the latest information,
- advice students about applying to British Universities,
- provide students with references,
- monitor how much of their application students have completed and, if needed, remind them of upcoming the deadlines,
- allow higher education (HE) providers to track where students have come from.
