Four referees tell us how they manage the process.

Managing your students’ applications

As a UCAS registered centre, you’ll get access to our free online services which allow you to manage and track your students’ applications.

Your students can link their applications to your registered centre — so you can monitor, advise, and check their UCAS Undergraduate applications from the start, before adding references and submitting to us. 

For the 2020 cycle, our new adviser portal replaces and enhances our existing services. For the 2019 cycle, you will still need to use Apply for advisers.

Tracking your students’ applications post-submission

Adviser Track is accessed through Apply for advisers, and enables you to keep up-to-date with your students’ applications once they're submitted to us. You can track university decisions and make sure your students don't miss reply deadlines.

You can subscribe to Adviser Track at any time, for just £50 (+VAT) per year.

Find out more about reports available throughout the year in our  Adviser Track and Reporting brochure (396.74 KB).

Please note, our new adviser portal replaces this service from the 2020 cycle, which means it will be available to all registered centres, for free.
