Introduce the UCAS Hub to your classroom

We know you’re really busy, and that for some of you, advising students on their next steps isn’t your dedicated role. So, as well as recently introducing the new UCAS Hub – our free tool designed to help students explore all their options in one place – we’ve also created a series of lesson plans to help.

Elements of each lesson plan are supported by tools within the UCAS Hub, so before you get started, make sure your students have created their individual accounts – here’s how.
