How to fill In the UCAS Application Form

These videos take you through filling in the UCAS Application Form step by step.

Although the form seems straightforward, there are areas where students often make mistakes- so it's crucial you watch this whilst filling in the form. You can pause the video and continue at your own pace, so can break it up into sections if you like (as it's quite a big job!).

Please email Futures@stbrn.ac.uk or ceiag@stbrn.ac.uk for support if you need it, and you can also attend the UCAS Drop-In Sessions which run on Mondays (in B111) and Wednesdays (in B225) from 12.10-13.45.
