Switch to Science

Friday, 08 August 2014

Biology Student
A recent BBC article has highlighted how “thousands of pupils in the UK are being given scant or wrong advice about the best A-level subjects to study to gain a degree place”. Is that you? Or were you encouraged to take ‘easy’ A-levels when you really wanted to study something else? Well if you find yourself with the wrong A-levels to study the degree you wanted help may be at hand. Studies in Science is a conversion course designed to build on your current level...

An Extra Chance

Wednesday, 19 March 2014

If you were hoping to start studying for a degree in September 2014, but do not hold any offers then you may feel like you have missed the boat. This is where UCAS Extra comes in as it provides the opportunity to make an additional application. This could be a good opportunity to review your options. Did you know that the University of Leeds offers extended degree programmes for those currently without the necessary qualifications to apply directly on one of our degrees? The foundation year element offers intensive and supportive preparation for degree level study...

With these in mind we recently hosted a UCAS Information Day for Further Education College students at...

Writing a UCAS personal statement

Monday, 14 October 2013

It is a busy time at the University, students starting new programmes, returning students and for me, as College Liaison Officer, a new round of sessions with prospective students in the local colleges. This month, the focus is all on UCAS applications; from UCAS choices to UCAS personal statements. There is a lot of incorrect information out of the internet (as well as some very good information) surrounding personal statements. This is where our specific UCAS sessions are valuable, unpicking the good from the bad. A good rule of thumb would be to only take information from reputable websites: pointers...
