  4. 4. THE FACTS: http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/EducationAndLearning/UniversityAndHigherEducation/WhyGoToUniversityOrCollege/DG_4016998 <ul><li>There are currently over two million higher education students in the UK. </li></ul><ul><li>Higher education courses are offered at around 130 universities and higher education colleges, and many further education colleges. </li></ul><ul><li>With more than 50,000 courses in a variety of academic and work-related subjects - including many that let you combine more than one subject - there's bound to be one that suits you. </li></ul>
  5. 5. How to... Apply to university? <ul><li>UCAS </li></ul><ul><li>For 2011 entry, it costs £21 to apply for more than one course, university or college through UCAS. </li></ul><ul><li>It costs £11 if you only apply for one course at one university or college.- I advise STRONGLY AGAINST choosing one course. </li></ul><ul><li>For most courses, you’ll need to get your application to UCAS by 15 January 2011 in order to be considered ‘on time’ (so about nine months prior to courses starting in September). </li></ul><ul><li>However, you must apply by 15 October 2010 if you're studying medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine or veterinary science, or if you're applying to the universities of Oxford or Cambridge. </li></ul><ul><li>The deadline for some art and design courses is 24 March 2011. </li></ul><ul><li>Whichever course you're applying for, UCAS advises students to apply well before the deadline. </li></ul><ul><li>However, you can still apply through UCAS up to the end of June 2011. Universities and colleges may still consider your application, but the most popular courses may already be full. If you apply after the end of June, you’ll automatically go into Clearing. </li></ul>
