You may well have heard that there is very little time left to make sure your UCAS application is shipshape and ready to go ahead of the 15 January deadline! Early UCAS stats indicate there has been a 1% drop in UCAS applications this year.
If you’re planning to go to university when you finish school then now is the time to send off your UCAS application.
The university route will lead to the option to apply for graduate level jobs in related disciplines when you graduate. If you’re still not 100% sure on which route to take when you leave, whether that’s university and higher education, or a Higher Apprenticeship, then it’s well worth submitting a top notch application to cover your bases.
The New Year is the time to start really researching your alternative routes as well if you aren’t completely decided on the university path. Apprenticeships and school leaver programmes are also a valid option with great career progression and training opportunities if you feel that going straight into work could be your calling.
Good luck with those pesky applications! Almost there!
