How is information about my Service experience used?

This information is shared (securely) with those who are responsible for supporting you at university or college (e.g. the student services team).

Knowing about your circumstances may also help admissions staff to take your achievements into account and gain a better understanding of your achievements and potential in context. They may get in touch with you to share more details about the support and opportunities they offer, or events and resources you may find useful to prepare for higher education. They may also be able to tell you about any opportunities to support their own work with the wider Armed Forces community.

Your information may also be used (anonymously) for monitoring purposes. This helps the university to inform and improve the support they provide to other students from a military background in the future.

The information you share with UCAS is kept in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018.

For more information about who your information is shared with, read UCAS’ privacy policy.
