UCAS update

Attention to current students applying to University for 2021 entry.

UCAS has extended the application deadline by two weeks.; the new deadline is now 18.00 on Jan 29. If you are still working on your application, or starting your application, there is still time. Don’t forget, there is a step by step guide on the UniBound pages in the Careers section of Moodle. 

 We are still here to help.  Please contact careers@sparsholt.ac.uk  for any additional assistance.

Careers interviews are impartial, confidential and focused on your individual needs and aim to help you to clarify where you are currently at in the process, identify what you need to do next and talk you through how to go about it.

Our Careers Adviser is also the UCAS administrator and is available to support you through the UCAS process, including work on personal statements, and anything in general to do with higher education.
