Last chance for UCAS applicants
Although the UCAS deadline is fast approaching (15 January), it’s still not too late if you’re thinking of applying for university. With two days to go, don't panic – there’s still time to make a decision about opting for Higher Education.
The University of Bedfordshire welcomes last minute admissions and Bob Cozens, Director of Admissions, says: “Although many of our popular courses may now have limited availability, we’re still keen to receive applications for any course as we give equal consideration to all prospective students no matter when they apply.”
Here are Bob’s top tips to make sure you can meet that UCAS deadline on Wednesday:
- Do your research: Look carefully at the course you are interested in and what the entry requirements are. It is also a good idea to have a look at where you want to study and what the local area is like. When choosing a university, what else is on offer to help support you with your studies? At Bedfordshire we now offer all full-time undergraduate students a minimum of £1,500 in financial support to ensure finance is not a barrier to study.
- Make it personal: Your personal statement is your chance to ensure you stand out from the crowd, so give yourself enough time to do a good job. Don’t just focus on your academic achievements, but also mention your interests and any work experience you have done.
- Double check before submitting: First impressions count, so check your spelling and grammar and make sure it makes sense by reading through your application several times. Even better, ask someone else to read it through – an extra pair of eyes may pick up mistakes you have missed.
- Try not to panic: If you are applying for a popular course such as Nursing, Teaching or Social Work, don’t worry – as long as you apply by the deadline your application will get equal consideration.
