Each student in the Sixth Form who wishes to apply to University follows the UCAS process to submit their application. MBS staff are trained UCAS advisors so that can provide individual support to all our students about the process.
The UCAS programme begins in Year 12 when students are introduced to UCAS and they students begin to research potential University courses and attend University Open Days.
From the beginning of Year 12, students will be enrolled on Unifrog. An online platform to search for university courses, collate information that they will need for their applications and guide them through the process. It is a platform that enables both teachers and parents to track a student’s progress through the applications.
In Year 13, a Parents’ Information Evening for students wishing to apply to University will be held in the first few weeks of Year 13. A booklet will also be issued to each student, informing them of the deadlines and how to write their personal statement. This will align with our dedicated support programme in school which will help students to craft the best application and personal statement.
