What is a UCAS registered centre?

Schools, colleges, advisers or agents can register with UCAS to become a centre. We provide UCAS registered centres with a suite of tools to help manage student applications, and give access to the latest information, advice and services. 

Registered centres have access to all their applicants’ details in Apply, can check applications, attach references, and submit to UCAS on behalf of the applicant. If the applicant agrees, and the centre subscribes to Adviser Track, it can track the progress of applications, view decisions, and support applicants.

We expect our registered centres to abide by UCAS’ terms and conditions and as they have access to sensitive data. Any breach will be investigated fully and may lead to suspension of being a UCAS registered centre.  

It's important to complete all sections of the form, and details marked * are required.

Please note, if you have completed an application, you do not need to complete another application. If you are unsure whether or not to proceed, please email our Schools Team at, and we can check for you.
