UCAS is an independent charity providing information, advice, and admissions services to inspire and facilitate educational progression. 

Our services support young people making choices after their GCSEs, as well as those applying for undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

What we do

UCAS is more than just an undergraduate admissions portal. We offer several services for different audiences, and those who want to reach them including:

UCAS Undergraduate

More than three million applications are made every year. Part of our role is to guide prospective students (plus parents and advisers) along the right route, giving them the support and advice they need to make an informed decision about their future.

UCAS Conservatoires

The application service for both undergraduates and postgraduates keen to study practice-based music, dance, screen, production, and drama courses at the eight UK conservatoires in the scheme.

UCAS Teacher Training

UCAS Teacher Training is an admissions service for graduates interested in becoming teachers. It covers full-time and part-time training programmes at universities, colleges, School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) providers, and School Direct providers in England and Wales.

UCAS Postgraduate

UCAS Postgraduate is our application management service that allows students to search and apply for postgraduate courses, and track the progress of their applications.
