About the UCAS

UCAS (The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) is a registered charity based in the United Kingdom. It operated the application for colleges and British universities across the UK. It receives it’s income from the fees charged to applicants as well as advertising and a fee charged to universities.

The services UCAS provides include:

• Online application portals
• Free information on universities and applications
• Advice to students considering higher education

The organisation was formed in 1992 through the merger of UCCA (Universities Central Council on Admissions) and PCAS (Polytechnics Central Admissions System). In recent years, UCAS has stopped using paper applications and now only accepts applications that are dome online through the UCAS website.

Just about all universities and higher education colleges in the UK use UCAS as their application service and any student applying for an undergraduate, must use the UCAS service.

The personal statement that is required in the application is vital to acceptance into universities and colleges and UCAS offers assistance and advice on what is expected of applicants. The subject matter includes interests, suitability, achievements and commitment to education.
