Application Process UK- Step by Step

Application Process UK- Step by Step


  1. School List: The most important component of the process and involves thorough research and the contribution of experienced counselors. A list is devised in three categories- “dream schools” that a student wants to try although the possibilities of being accepted are low; “target schools” that fall within the range of the student’s credentials and one “safety school” that is a 100% admit. In addition, decisions must be made as to whether the student will apply for International Foundation programs or Direct Entry into the 1st year.
  2. Applications: A straightforward process that involves setting up accounts for the various applications for different schools. (Direct Entry and some foundation programs require students to apply through UCAS, which has to be submitted by January 15 th, international foundation programs generally set no limits.)
  3. CV: A list of the activities that the students have been involved in starting with Grade 9 through Grade 12. Many schools do not require a CV however it still may be good to have prepared CV.
  4. Personal Statement: UCAS requires a straightforward statement outlining interests and reasons for choosing the program (47 lines max) Most foundation programs require the same without a word limit.
  5. Sending scores: Many schools require students to self-report their test scores but they are not official unless they are sent to the institutions officially by the institution that has administered the test. Scores are sent on line or through fast mail.
  6. Follow up: Once the applications are sent, schools will send account information and the student has to follow the progress of documents. Until the file is complete, the follow up has to continue.
  7. Decisions: There is no formal announcement date as decisions are made in rounds.
  8. Visa: The student must apply for a student visa as soon as the CAS number is issued by the institution the student has chosen to attend.
  9. Payments: Students enroll on line and payments are usually made in August.
  10.  Travel: Don’t forget to reserve tickets for the orientation date announced by the school as most students travel at the same time and tickets become scarce!!
