Not Going to Uni Choosing the Right University Every course and every university is different and each student wants different things. The chances of finding a perfect match can be a challenge despite over 150 universities and university-level higher education colleges in the UK and the wide range of courses available. You will almost certainly need to decide what is most important to you. Do you want the best course or one that is quite good but offers the options you really want? So choosing the the right course at the right university for you will require some research. The more research you put into the process the more likely you will make the right decision. This will then free you up to focus on your studies and ensure that you hit the grades which will actually get you to your univeristy and your course of choice. Good luck! So how do you go about choosing a university? For some, the choice of subject and type of course will narrow down the number of possible universities to just a few. Next page: The Location

Applying to a UK University « British Universities in Brunei Association Before making an application The application process for most UK Universities is usually similar in that you apply via UCAS for undergraduate programmes and directly to the University for postgraduate programmes. However, the application process may differ from university to university so we advise you to check this on the University websites. Before making an application, you should spend time researching the University and the course to ensure it is the right choice (see “What to consider…” section, below). In addition to your course/institution research, you should also prepare your supporting documents (e.g. academic and English language qualifications, academic references, etc) and a personal statement. Being fully prepared will ensure a faster, smooth-running application process. What to consider when choosing a UK University? You may be about to spend the next few years of your life living and studying in an overseas country. Undergraduate Applications Postgraduate Applications

Writing a personal statement Writing a personal statement is probably one of the most difficult parts of the UCAS application form. Many students will not have done much creative writing since GCSE, and even if you have, it's still very hard to write about yourself. We've produced this short guide on writing a personal statement to help you with the process. Just read through it, follow the steps, and you should soon have a rough first draft in place. However, if you feel you need a little extra guidance, check out our personal statement editing and critique services. OK, let’s start with the basics... We suggest you have a pretty good idea of what course you want to study before continuing much further with your personal statement. Generally, personal statements are quite specific so if you decide to change the course you are applying for you would need to rewrite your personal statement. If you’re still uncertain as to which course you want to apply for, take a look at our page on choosing a degree. Next... UCAS advice
