How to add your qualifications to the application
Make sure you put in all the qualifications you have or are currently doing.
- Add your grades and results as well.
- Give us as much information as possible – without it the course providers will struggle to make a decision.
When you fill in the online application you enter all your qualifications.
- These are listed by name and country.
- If yours is not in the list, you can add it into the 'other' box.
You may have to send proof of your results in certificates or transcripts to the course provider.
- They all have different policies for how they want to receive them.
- While some course providers ask you to send everything straight away, some will do their initial assessment of your application before asking to see proof of your results.
- Although we can send some results from the awarding bodies to your chosen course providers – including the International Baccalaureate and more – for most international qualifications you'll have to send them direct to course providers yourself.
International personal statements
In the UCAS application you have to write a personal statement.
- Write about why you want to study the subject.
- If you are applying to more than one course provider, do not mention them by name because they all receive the same personal statement.
- Try also to mention why you want to study in the United Kingdom.
- Describe your English language skills (and mention any English courses or tests you have taken).
- Explain why you want to be an international student rather than study in your own country.
