Plan your journey to University

As you’ve learned, there are lots of steps you have to take to go to university in the UK. These steps are:

  1. Research courses and universities

  2. Complete the UCAS application form

  3. Wait for decisions

  4. Accept or decline offers

  5. Results day (if you are doing A-levels in the UK)

  6. If you get the right results: wait for confirmation from the university

  7. If you don’t get the right results: go through clearing

More details of these steps can be found on page 8 of this document from the University of Manchester.

As a refugee or asylum seeker, you will also have to provide evidence of:

  1. Qualifications from your own country

  2. English language ability

  3. Your refugee status

You may also want to apply for bursaries and scholarships and these will also have requirements and time lines to follow.

There is lots to do and plan in order to make sure you don’t miss key dates. Look at this document which will give you an idea of a timeline.

Task: Now create your own journey and put key dates against each stage. Share this with the course. What is the first thing you need to do?
