An online interactive programme that will support you with all things UCAS.

Thank you for your interest in the "U Can UCAS!" programme. This three-part interactive programme will support you with all things UCAS – from navigating the basics to writing your personal statement.

Places on the programme are limited so we ask that anybody interested fill in a short application. If you are successful you will join a small group of likeminded students to focus on a different theme each week. When you apply you will need to commit to all five sessions.

Session 1: The art of crafting an outstanding personal statement - Thursday, 4 November 2021, 17:00 - 18:30

Session 2: Making good UCAS choices - Thursday, 11 November 2021, 17:00 - 18:30

Session 3: How do you pay for University? - Thursday, 18 November 2021, 17:00 - 18:30

We are now accepting applications until 22 October 2021. Your application will be judged on your response to the final question. Answers to all other questions are used for planning so please answer them honestly. We will contact you to tell you if your application has been successful by 2 November 2021.

Please note: these sessions will follow an application process, and not everyone who applies will be accepted. Sessions are suitable for students in school years 12 and 13 or in college only, and eligibility criteria apply.

All students who take part will need the permission of a parent, carer or guardian. Please let them know to expect an email from Make Happen once you have applied. This may appear in their junk mail.
