Join the British Council, UCAS and Lancaster University on Wednesday, November 15 for the third in a series of three webinars to support counsellors through the admissions process for UK universities and colleges.
Students can initially apply to up to five different courses in the UK on a single UCAS application and James will cover the application form itself, key dates and deadlines and the tools that UCAS can help you support your students during the application cycle. There will also be tips on how to write a strong personal statement, the supporting reference and predicted grades.
A representative from Lancaster University will also be taking part in the session to provide their perspective on the topics raised.
Ahead of the webinar, please email any specific questions or topics you would like covered to Jenna.Hartsell@britishcouncil.org.
