UCAS has a skills-based board of 13 trustees. Our trustees provide strategic guidance and scrutiny, and are accountable for ensuring our strategy demonstrably meets our charitable objectives and delivers public benefit. The board is supported by the Audit, Finance, Remuneration, and Nominations committees. Trustees are selected and appointed based on their specific skills, experience, and expertise. The Board is also supported by the UCAS Council, which was established in 2013 to represent UCAS’ customers and stakeholders. The Council comprises about 35 Council members, sourced through nominating organisations and bodies as well as open recruitment at the discretion of the CEO.

We are now seeking individuals to join the UCAS council.
