How do I apply to university in the UK?

Almost all university applications in the UK must go through a UCAS centre. Make your UCAS application through ITS Education Asia.

We are a fully accredited UCAS centre (No: S45903). We can process your UCAS application whether you study with us or not. If your application is being handled by your school but you want help with choosing courses, personal statement or re-applying, please contact us.

The full package includes:

  • up to 3 hours of personal statement writing
  • writing of the reference
  • submission of the application (including the application fee),
  • monitoring of the application
  • subsequent advice regarding offers

Cost: HK$11,880, or US$1,550 if done online

(Discount HK$800 (US$110) for certain ITS students – ask if you qualify) OR get one-off counselling lessons for any part of the UCAS process: HKD910 (USD130 online)

If you are applying to certain universities or certain courses you may need to go through additional entry requirements which need support as they are so competitive e.g. for entrance tests, additional work submission and interviews. We are a full admissions test centre and have a great track record with Oxbridge applications.




What is the UCAS Tariff?

The UCAS tariff allocates points to qualifications used to enter higher education so you can use a range of qualifications to get a place on an undergraduate course. Qualifications are accepted from all over the world, and allocated points based on equivalency. Different levels on any given qualification attract different amounts of tariff points.

The UCAS tariff enables universities and colleges to compare applicants with different applications and is an important factor in entry requirements, although other factors are also taken into consideration.


How is the Tariff used in higher education?

It is common for entry requirements and conditional offers using Tariff points to require a minimum level of achievement, sometimes in a specified subject. For example, "300 points to include grade A at A-level Mathematics".

The actual use of the UCAS Tariff can vary between departments in any one university or college, and can also depend on the type of programme being applied for.

UCAS Tariff points are awarded for a wide range of qualifications, including BTEC National Award, Key Skills at levels 2, 3 and 4, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. There is no maximum limit to the number of points that can be accumulated.

Although your qualifications may give you UCAS Tariff points, having the required amount does not guarantee a place on your preferred course, as other factors are also considered.

If your qualifications do not attract UCAS Tariff points, there is still a chance you can get accepted on to your chosen course. UCAS Tariff are not used by all universities and colleges for making offers to prospective students, so if you feel there might be a question mark over your success with an application due to your qualification, contact the relevant university admissions office.


How do I find out how many points my qualifications are worth?

To see the number of points each of your qualifications are worth, consult the UCAS Tariff tables on the UCAS website.
