The UCAS widget

Host the UCAS widget on your school/college website or Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), to link students and their parents to important UCAS info.

What is it?

The UCAS widget has been designed to be hosted on your school or college’s website or Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), to link your students and their parents to important information about higher education and the UCAS application process.

Through simple and intuitive navigation, it’s easy for users to increase their knowledge of the information and advice UCAS has to offer. The content will be reviewed regularly by UCAS so it remains up-to-date and relevant.

 


Why should I use it?

Parents and carers with little or no prior knowledge of higher education can find it hard to understand how best to support their son or daughter throughout the process. By embedding this free, easy-to-use widget on your website or VLE, your students and their parents can access the information they need, when they need it.


How do I get it?

The widget couldn't be easier to host on your website or VLE. Ask your IT team to follow these steps:

1. Decide where on your website or VLE you would like the widget to be placed. The size of the area required is width = 300px, height = 250px.

2. Copy the following frame code. Depending on your content management system, you might only need to copy the URL, which is https://www.ucasdigital.com/widgets/advisers/ucas-adviser-widget.html.

<!--UCAS Adviser widget iframe -->

<iframe id=“ucas_adviser_widget”

src=https://www.ucasdigital.com/widgets/advisers/ucas-adviser-widget.html

width=“300” height=“250” frameborder=“0” scrolling=“no”></iframe>

<!-- end UCAS Adviser widget iframe -->

3. Paste the code (or URL) into the <body> tag of your chosen web page, in the required location. The code can also be pasted into tags, with the above size specifications. Once you have pasted the code into your <body> tag, we recommend checking it has not altered your existing code.

4. The widget will be displayed where you have pasted the code.

If you have any questions about the widget, or how to use it on your website or VLE, take a look at the 'Guides and resources' page in the advisers' section of ucas.com. For full terms and conditions, go to www.ucas.com/widgetterms.

The widget is so easy to embed and enables our students and their parents to access important UCAS information direct from our website.
