Exploring what the 'university experience' involves and how different it can be depending on where you go, is an important step in deciding where you might like to apply later on.
There are over 130 universities across the length and breadth of the UK, each with its own unique culture and benefits. To help you think about your choices and to provide support in securing your university place, we have included a range of guidance pages below. There are three things to think about as you explore university options:
Getting to know - To ensure that you have a great university experience, it is important to research not just the right course but also the right university and the right location for you.
Getting in - There is a range of support available to help you get into university, including gaining experience to boost your application, as well as financial and practical support to remove barriers.
Getting on - To make the most of the university experience and your degree, as you plan your UCAS application we also recommend that you begin to think about life as a student and as a graduate.
