For Learners

For information on full-time higher education in all UK universities and colleges, including course and university search facilities and access to the online APPLY system, go to the UCAS website.

Which University has some great information and guidance which can help you to choose a course and institution that is perfect for you. The website is crammed with really helpful advice and even has an A-Level Explorer which shows you where your Level 3 subjects could lead!

To search for university and college open days across the UK and beyond visit the Open Days website.

Have you left it too late to apply?

Recent years have seen increasing numbers of students applying for university late in the admissions cycle, with some even waiting until after they have received their A-level results. With this in mind, Aimhigher has produced a handy leaflet outlining the options available to late applicants and how to go about the process.  We hope this will be helpful to you, if you need further advice, speak to a careers adviser or visit the UCAS website.
