Apply training

Come to our training days at UCAS HQ, in Cheltenham, to gain confidence in using Apply.

What’s on offer?

If you're inexperienced and about to put your first cohort of students through the UCAS Apply system, this training is for you.

It is imperative for advisers to fully understand the use of Apply when helping students into higher education. This should include an understanding of both the online application, and how to manage the application process at your centre using Staff Apply. You'll have the opportunity to:

  • complete an online application (Applicant Apply)
  • understand how to successfully set-up and coordinate Apply for Advisers
  • track the progress of applications
