Know Your Stuff | UCAS

We are the organisation responsible for managing applications to higher education courses in the UK. Not only do we process more than two million applications for full-time undergraduate courses every year, but we help students to find the right course. We try to make things run as smoothly as possible by providing innovative online tools which make it easier for students and higher education institutions (HEIs) to manage applications and offers.

We provide application services across a range of subject areas and modes of study for UK universities and colleges. More than half a million people wanting to study at a university or college use our services each year. Our specialist services, the Graduate Teacher Training Registry (GTTR), the UK Postgraduate Application and Statistical Service (UKPASS) and the Conservatoires UK Admissions Service (CUKAS) are used by more than 50,000 people every year.

We aim to help students make informed choices about higher education, guiding them, their parents and advisers through the application process.

We carry out research, consultancy and advisory work for schools, colleges, careers services, professional bodies and employers. We also offer continuing professional development tailored to meet the needs of individual institutions or subject areas. This ensures a long-term commitment to improving admissions processes across the industry.
